As an employee, you are generally owed significantly more than your employer has offered you at the time of dismissal. You often believe your employer will treat you fairly because they are like family. In reality, they are not family and you are being short changed for your years of handwork and dedication. Over decades the law has developed in the are of employment and labour law and we have that knowledge. We advocated on behalf of employees to improve existing severance packages and negotiate directly on their behalf with their employer. We also develop strategies to remove employees from toxic  work environments marked by harassment, discrimination and improper workplace investigations. If you have been dismissed without cause, you should obtain a severance package review. In most cases we are able to provide a free initial consultation if you have been dismissed without cause. For most wrongful dismissals we also offer flexible legal fees where you do not pay legal unless we win your case or obtain a an improved offer from the one you had us first review.
