Fired, wrongfully dismissed, laid off or terminated from your job? Obtain a free severance review if you have been dismissed without cause and you feel you have been offered too little or want to know your rights.


By law, when dismissed without cause (the majority of all cases in Ontario), your employer owes you notice of dismissal and/or a severance package. Often your entitlements are far more than stated in your offer letter, employment contract and the Employment Standards Act ("ESA"). They are generally much greater than your employer has initially offered or will tell you that you are owed. That is where Stitz Litigation, employment lawyers Toronto, comes in. We are severance package lawyers. Often we can void your employment contract and obtain significantly greater severance for you by making sophisticated legal arguments other lawyers have limited knowledge of. Your employer will often put you on an unrealistic timeline and give you a deadline to sign an offer while not informing you that if you believe you are entitled to more you can hire an employment lawyer to negotiate a better severance package. We even are able to get your employer to pay a portion of our legal fees in most cases.


Losing your job can be one of the most difficult and stressful experiences an individual goes through. Often employees are taken advantage of and leave a lot of money and benefits on the table when they do not use the service of an employment lawyer for employees. If you have been offered too little by your employer and wrongfully dismissed, Stitz Litigation, Toronto employment lawyers, takes on that burden and helps you obtain the compensation you are owed. In most wrongful dismissal cases where you have been terminated without cause, you do not pay unless we improve your severance package and recover more money for you.  There is no risk. Let us tell you if you have been made a fair offer.


Your employment contract is often not enforceable and your employers has offered you too little. Speak to an experienced Toronto employment lawyer before you sign anything your employer presents to you upon termination of employment.

Your length of service, your age, the nature of your employment and related factors can all impact the amount to which you are entitled. A termination of employment without cause during Covid-19 might entitle you to more than under ordinary circumstances. You need an employment law expert to guide you. Often you have the right to sue for wrongful dismissal when you do not agree with your employers offer or the amount state in your employment contract. Did you know your employment contract is often not worth the paper it is written on; entitling you to much more.
