You may be fearful, angry, or confused about how to deal with it.  The Rose Law Firm is here to help resolve employment issues in a reasonable and peaceful manner.

Our employment lawyers can ensure that your employee rights are protected and upheld:
  • Severance Package Reviews – If you have been recently terminated, you should have your termination letter reviewed to ensure that you are not signing away your rights to any severance that you may be entitled to.
  • Contract Reviews – Have your contract reviewed before starting your new dream job to save expense later if things go sour. You should have things like non-compete or non-solicitation clauses, termination clauses or severance amounts, and discretionary bonus clauses all reviewed by a lawyer experienced with employment issues.
  • Fired for Cause – It is normally implied within the employment relationship that the employer may terminate employment for very good reason. If you have been fired for cause, talk to an employment lawyer to make sure the termination is legal.
  • Severance Pay – are you entitled to severance pay? Although many people interchange the two, severance pay is distinct from termination pay. Severance pay is an amount of money paid to an employee by an employer under certain conditions specified by the employment standards act.
  • Termination Pay – are you entitled to termination pay? Termination pay is the minimums set out by the Employment Standards Act.
  • Payment in Lieu of Notice – are you entitled to payment in lieu of notice? Payment in lieu of notice is different from termination pay. Payment in Lieu of Notice, otherwise called common law notice. The Employment Standards Act provides the minimum amount of notice. In some cases, there is also the common law notice period requirement, resulting in enhanced termination pay depending on certain conditions.
