The loss of a job is perhaps the most common way in which Ontarians become involved in the legal system. There are a large number of claims for wrongful dismissal, loss of disability benefits and other employment-related disputes in Ontario courts. Oftentimes, if a person’s employment is being terminated without cause, the employer will provide a severance package to the departing employee. It is important that legal advice be obtained before accepting such packages, as it will not be possible to take court action after signing a release of legal rights.
In many other cases, the issues are more complicated and calls for the services of a caring and conscientious Toronto employment lawyer. If a person’s employment is terminated with cause, or the person is subject to an employment contract which limits their legal rights or the ability to earn a livelihood, difficult legal questions can arise.
