One of the most important aspects of a person's life is their work and career, and there are many laws that govern the relationship between employees and employers in Canada.
Employees have a number of rights which employers are required to respect. Employers also have rights, but the inherent power imbalance between employees and employers have motivated the creation of laws that protect certain employee rights, such as the right to wages, the right to be free from workplace harassment, the right to reasonable notice upon termination, etc.
The lawyers at KPA have experience representing both employers and employees in work-related disputes. Feel free to explore some of the information in our website to learn more about common issues that arise in the area of employment law.
If you'd like to speak with an employment lawyer, you can book a phone call by clicking here. In some specific situations, we might be able to represent you on a contingency fee, which means that we don't get paid until you do. However, this is rare and there are conditions that apply.
You can also use our free online severance pay analyzer if you have been fired and you want to know whether the severance package that you've been offered is fair.
