There are so many issues related to employment law, regarding both the employer and employees. Both expect a certain right from each other as they enter into a contractual relationship. It is my duty to protect the rights of employees and/or to defend the employers in the workplace. Employees in Ontario have significant rights. They are protected from any unfair violations that they might have wrongfully experienced.
Suffice to say, if you are concerned about whether or not you have been given fair treatment, or you experienced wrongful dismissal, or not given a severance package, then I can help you every step of the way in understanding and enforcing your rights as well as assist in clarifying your employment obligations.
NG is more than happy to discuss the facts of your case and help discover and weigh your options. I can attend on your behalf at Small Claims Court or for any tribunal including, Labor Board and Human Rights Tribunal in relation to employment disputes.
Types of Employment Disputes:
Wrongful dismissal occurs when an employer terminates an employee without providing reasonable notice or payment in lieu of notice. An employee who is wrongfully dismissed may be entitled to compensation for lost wages and benefits.
Constructive dismissal occurs when an employer makes significant changes to an employee's job duties, compensation, or working conditions without the employee's consent. An employee who is constructively dismissed may be entitled to compensation for lost wages and benefits.
Discrimination and Harassment
Discrimination and harassment can take many forms, such as race, gender, age, or disability. Employees who have been discriminated against or harassed may be entitled to compensation and other remedies.
Breach of Employment Contract
A breach of employment contract occurs when either the employer or the employee fails to fulfill their obligations under the employment contract. Examples of breaches of employment contract include failure to pay wages, failure to provide benefits, or failure to provide reasonable notice of termination. A breach of employment contract may be resolved through negotiation, mediation, or litigation.
Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Agreements
Non-competition and non-solicitation agreements are contracts that prohibit employees from competing with their employer or soliciting clients or customers of their employer for a period of time after their employment ends. Disputes can arise over the validity, enforceability, or scope of these agreements. Non-competition and non-solicitation disputes may be resolved through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or litigation.
Misrepresentation occurs when an employer makes a false or misleading statement that induces an employee to accept an employment offer. Examples of misrepresentation include false promises of job security or promotion, misrepresentations about the duties of the job, or misrepresentations about the salary or benefits of the job. Misrepresentation disputes may be resolved through negotiation, mediation, or litigation.
Whistleblowing occurs when an employee reports illegal or unethical activity by their employer. Disputes can arise when an employer retaliates against an employee for whistleblowing or when an employee makes false or malicious allegations against their employer. Whistleblowing disputes may be resolved through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or litigation.
Severance packages are payments or benefits provided to employees when their employment is terminated. Disputes can arise over the amount or adequacy of the severance package or over the validity of a release or waiver of rights that is part of the severance package. Severance package disputes may be resolved through negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or litigation.
Employment standards cover issues such as minimum wage, overtime pay, and vacation entitlements. Employees who believe that their employer has not complied with employment standards may file a complaint with the Ministry of Labour.
