How Brooker Law Defends Your Employment Rights
One of the most significant benefits our firm provides is combatting some of the ways employers terminate workers to reduce their liability. For example, an employer might encourage or coerce you into resigning, effectively ending your ability to seek damages. They can also engage in activities meant to drive you from your position. For example, they can change your job title and responsibilities and harass you until it is impossible to remain with the company. These actions are called constructive dismissal. In such cases, we can assess the situation and determine the employer acted improperly. Whether you’re the victim of constructive dismissal or a straightforward termination, there are several avenues that could result in compensation:
In pursuing your case, selecting the right court depends on several factors, including your former employer’s conduct and your financial losses. Brooker Law is an experienced courtroom litigation firm that can help you navigate this process successfully.
Administrative tribunals are another means of seeking a remedy against an employer For example, we could file an official complaint with the Ontario Ministry of Labour under the Employment Standards Act or Human Rights Tribunal under the Human Rights Code or, for federally regulated employees, the Canada Labour Code.
Instead of filing a lawsuit or complaint, it is sometimes more effective to negotiate with the employer or pursue mediation. This option is usually quicker, easier, and less stressful for our clients and can often result in fairer compensation.
