Toronto Employee Law Lawyers
Employment Lawyers for Toronto Employees
Our Employment Lawyers have been working of behalf of employees based in Toronto and the GTA since 1964. Whether your employment law concern is relating to a wrongful dismissal, severance package or employment contract, we are here to provide solid legal advice.
If you are an employee and have been fired, (or believe that your job is in jeopardy), it is wise to consult with an employment lawyer so that you can know what your rights are and how to protect them.
We can negotiate with your employer to get you the severance package that you deserve.
If an employer attempts to implement a major change to your detriment, you may be required to fight back. We can also guide you through the steps of litigation if it becomes necessary.
Employment and Executive Contracts
Every employment relationship is a contract, even if the terms aren’t written down. Concepts such as “severance package”, “wrongful dismissal” and “constructive dismissal” all derive from the contractual nature of the employment relationship. We can help you determine your rights and how to protect them.
We can also draft or help you review any written employment contract or executive contract before you accept it at the outset of your employment relationship.
Non-Competition, Non-Solicitation and Confidentiality
The obligations of a employee to an employer, such as: the duties of confidentiality, good faith, non-competition, non-solicitation, and fiduciary duty, are complicated and can result in significant liability if not abided by. We can help you navigate these obligations.
Taxes and Retiring Allowances
Taxes are also an important and potentially costly part of a wrongful dismissal case if not dealt with pro-actively. Allocation of payments, RRSP’s and other techniques can generate tax savings. Employers are often not concerned with protecting your tax positions. We can help save you from making these costly mistakes.
DSF lawyers and clerks can see both sides
Since we also act for employers, we have had the benefit of seeing both sides of employment matters. We believe that this makes us better advocates for our clients since we can anticipate the arguments which will be relied upon.
Deferral of Fees
At DSF, we understand that funding a wrongful dismissal lawsuit can be extremely difficult since your sole or main source of income, your job, has just been taken away. Employers will often attempt to take advantage of this fact. We offer a deferral option which allows the client to defer payment of fees incurred on select wrongful dismissal litigation until it settles or resolves.
