EMPLOYMENT LAW

Figuring out if you have a good claim against your employer or former employer should not cost anything at all. If we think you have a good case, we will likely offer to take it on a contingency fee. This means that if you do not win or settle the case, you do not have to pay. We are in the business of taking on good cases—and if we do not believe that you have one, we won’t charge you to tell you this.

At Shillers, our team of lawyers can help you evaluate your case, and we do it without any initial fees. We are all about value for you, the client. Contact Shillers today to immediately speak to a lawyer, for a free, no obligation consultation.

We can help you with all types of employment law disputes, including:

  • Wrongful Dismissal
  • Constructive Dismissal
  • Human Rights

WRONGFUL DISMISSAL

If an employer is looking to terminate an employee, they generally must provide reasonable notice of termination, or pay in lieu of notice. If an employer provides neither, this may constitute what is known as wrongful dismissal. Every situation is different, so your case will depend on your specific circumstances.

Some of the significant factors that courts consider when determining the length of “reasonable notice” include:

  • The person’s age;
  • Length of service with employer;
  • Availability of similar employment;

Being dismissed wrongfully can have a direct effect on your life, and your ability to provide for yourself or your family. Shillers can provide legal advice in your wrongful dismissal case.

CONSTRUCTIVE DISMISSAL

If an employer has changed an aspect of your employment without your agreement, this situation may be classified as ‘constructive dismissal.’

If this is the case, you may be entitled to damages for wrongful dismissal. As an employee, you might be entitled to the same notice period as if you had been wrongfully dismissed, and we will work with you so that you receive the compensation you deserve.

HUMAN RIGHTS

As a Canadian citizen, you are entitled to certain rights, no matter how old you are, where you come from, or your religion. Your human rights should never be infringed upon, so if you feel your employer is treating you differently, harassing you, or not accommodating you because of that, then you may have a case.

A breach in the Human Rights Code can result in compensation for lost wages and injury to dignity, feelings and self-respect. The areas covered by the Human Rights Code are:

Age
Ancestry, colour, race
Citizenship
Sexual orientation
Ethnic origin
Place of origin
Creed & religion
Disability
Family status
Marital status (Including Single Status)
Gender Identity, gender expression
Record of offences
Sex (including pregnancy and breastfeeding)

Your human rights guarantee you respect in the workplace, and we can help you mount a case if those rights have been compromised.
