If you’re here, it probably means that you are either an employer, an employee or a Human Resources professional experiencing a job dispute or are looking to prevent one.
Job disputes are unpleasant, stressful and emotionally challenging. Job disputes can also be financially draining on the organization.
Unfortunately, they are inevitable: most employers and employees will clash over various workplace issues during the lifetime of the employment relationship. Some job disputes are trivial and petty such as arguing over a failure by the employer to reimburse the employee for a minor expense; other job disputes are emotionally charged and can range from theft to workplace violence and harassment.
Fortunately, most workplace disputes are solvable and even preventable, no matter how dire they may seem initially.
We are confident that we can help.
We are experienced labour and employment lawyers who are retained by companies and individuals to litigate workplace conflict and we do so on a regular basis. This means that if you are an individual or an employer who is seeking to vindicate a legal right in relation to a workplace conflict, we are the right firm for you.
We also view ourselves as problem-solvers and dispute managers. We approach workplace conflict in a resolution-driven manner without “pouring gasoline on the fire,” and always keeping the client’s best interests in mind. We bring years of experience of workplace conflict resolution to the table. We have and continue to litigate labour and employment matters in Ontario courts and tribunals on a regular basis. However, our philosophy is to minimize the need to do so. If possible, we prefer to accomplish an “out of court” settlement for our clients in private and we are very good at doing that. When impossible to do so, we are ready to represent our clients vigorously in court.
What you need to know is that we are here for you. We understand that you are experiencing a stressful period in your life, and we want to assure you that we will be by your side every step of the way until your job dispute is resolved. Although each case is unique, chances are we have already assisted others with something like the issues you are experiencing in your workplace matter at the present.
Whether you are an employer who is dealing with a difficult employee or complex workplace dynamics, or you are an employee who is dealing with a toxic work environment or a workplace accommodation concern, we are confident we can help.
