Employment Lawyer & Labour Lawyer | Markham

Zeilikman Law: Markham’s Employment, Labour, and Litigation Law Professionals

Experienced counsel and results-oriented representation for individuals, unions, small to medium-sized business owners

As the fourth-largest city in the Greater Toronto Area, the City of Markham has morphed rapidly from an agricultural community to a bustling urbanized centre, driven by mainly tertiary industry as business services for several multinational corporations and over 900 technology firms collectively employ more than 20% of the city’s labour force.

Comprised of six major communities – Berczy Village, Cornell, Markham Village, Milliken, Thornhill, and Unionville – Markham’s transformation from a rural town to one of Southern Ontario’s most important cities is a testament to the vibrant, thriving business community that powers it. Like all urban centres, Markham’s labour force and business leaders have, on occasion, found themselves at loggerheads.

From wrongful dismissals to human rights complaints, facing a legal challenge related to your business or career can be an extremely stressful and confusing event. That’s when you need to turn to an experienced, engaged, and trustworthy legal team to represent you and your interests.

  • Wrongful dismissals, human rights violations, and sexual harassment
  • We negotiate and represent professionals in matters of discipline for several professions
  • Workplace group coverage and short- and long-term disability benefits
  • Complex disputes such as purchase and sale of business arguments and restrictive covenants
