Should You See an Employment Lawyer About that Issue?

Feb 23, 2016

We often receive calls from individuals wondering whether it is worth spending the money to see an employment lawyer.  Sometimes this is because the employee has been fired and received a termination letter and the employee wants to know if the amount is fair.  Other times it is because an employee has been offer a new job and wants to know whether the employment contract is reasonable.

Spending money on a consultation can feel like a burden for someone who has just lost their job, or who is out of working and looking for new employment.  That said, we think this is an important investment. Spending this money up front can result in significant benefits down the road.  It can also leave the employee with peace of mind going into employment or peace of mind knowing they received a fair package from their former employer.

At MacLeod Law Firm, we focus exclusively on employment, labour and human rights law.  That way, we can provide clients with expert advice on any employment issue.  We focus on providing advice in a manner that is straightforward and easy to understand.  We can clarify and explain the legal language in your employment contract or severance package so that you understand what the employer is offering and what your rights are. We have multiple lawyers and will match you with the most appropriate person for your case.

If you would like to speak with an experienced employment lawyer, please contact us at [email protected] or 647-204-8107.
