How We Help

 

Wrongful Dismissal

Lost your job? Make sure you have been paid what you are owed in severance. Our Windsor lawyers are skilled at quickly assessing severance offers and advising you as to whether you have a fair deal.

Human Rights

Discrimination may be an action or a decision that negatively affects you as a result, for example, of your race, age, disability, or sex. Our Windsor human rights lawyers can help you enforce your rights.

Restrictive Covenants

We advise employees and employers on the use and enforceability of non-competition and non-solicitation clauses. Our Windsor lawyers quickly assess the strength of such clauses, and advise as to potential liability.

 

Employment Contract Review

Drafting a clear and enforceable employment contract that protects your interests is one of the most important things that a business can do. Failing to do so can result in significant liability. Our lawyers can help you avoid common mistakes.

Severance Package Review

If your employer presents you with a severance package, make sure you know whether it is fair. Our lawyers can help you assess the offer and, if required, negotiate on your behalf to get a better deal.

Disability Claims

If you find that your short or long term disability benefits have been denied, don’t give up. Our disability lawyers help employees appeal denials of benefits. We help ensure the insurance company receives the information it requires to approve your receipt of benefits.

 
 

Constructive Dismissal

Have you recently experienced a major change in your job? Has your salary or hours been reduced? Have your job duties been drastically altered? Don’t take these changes lying down. Our Windsor employment lawyers can help.

Workplace Policies

Clearly-drafted workplace policies should be the cornerstone of employee management at any business. We regularly work with our employer clients to help simplify the workplace policy process and ensure compliance.
