What We Do

Employment Lawyers for You

Severance Pay, Termination or Dismissal, Harassment,
Discrimination, and Accommodation

Have you been fired by your employer or forced to quit your job? Have you experienced wrongful dismissal? No severance pay or too little severance pay offered? Do you have a termination pay package to review? Questions about employment contracts?

There are many Canadian employment law issues in which a person may require legal representation or professional legal advice. Our lawyers are here to help. With over 35 years of experience, we fight for your rights and compensation.

We're Toronto-based employment lawyers serving Ontario and all of Canada. We offer free consultations, experienced advice on employment and disability law, and no fees unless you win.

If your employment rights have been violated, our employment law firm can help.

How Our Employment Lawyers Can Help You

Is my termination or severance pay package fair?

Need more certainty about the fairness of your severance package? Let our Toronto employment lawyers review it for free. We offer free consultations to assess whether an offer aligns with your employment agreement. If it falls short, we'll fight for a better outcome. Contact us to discuss your employment law concerns. Our fees are results-based: we only get a percentage of the increased severance we secure for you.

Cases an Employment Lawyer Can Help With

Wrongful Dismissal

It could be wrongful dismissal if your employer has let you go without a valid reason. Your rights matter. Contact our employment lawyers to determine if your rights were violated and secure fair compensation. If your employer claims just cause for termination, consult an experienced employment lawyer for guidance.

Failure to Accommodate

Employers must accommodate disability up to "undue hardship" per employment law. If your employer fails to make reasonable efforts, consult our employment lawyers to understand your rights. Legal representation is crucial in such cases.

Workplace Harassment

You have the right to a harassment-free workplace. If you're facing mistreatment and your employer isn't addressing it, consult our employment lawyers for support under employment law. Professional advice from our Toronto legal team empowers you to manage your employment concerns confidently.

Workplace Discrimination

If you've faced workplace discrimination due to disability, age, ethnicity, or other protected factors, you may have a claim under employment and labour law rights. If aspects of your employment contract are unfulfilled and you feel you’re unfairly treated, consult our employment lawyers to ensure fair treatment.
Please note our employment lawyers do not handle labour relations cases. We do not take cases related to the Ontario Labour Relations Board or other Provinces' Labour Relations Boards.

How much time do I have?

There are time limits to all disability claims and any delay in proceeding may be subject to a deadline so you should not delay in proceeding with your disability claim or obtaining legal advice to clarify these deadlines. We understand how important these timelines are and will respond to any call or email as soon as we can.

Employment Lawyer Fees

We’re different from other law firms working in employment and labour law because we offer a free consultation, and you don’t pay us unless you win.* There are no upfront costs, and there are no fees until we win your case. You are not alone: we only get paid if you get paid. It is part of our Share Law Guarantee.

*Certain exceptions apply, and in cases where our employment lawyers cannot offer a contingency fee retainer, we will discuss other options with you.

Employment & Disability

We assist numerous clients terminated due to illness or disability. While simply “pushing through” at work may seem right, remember that you have options. If your health concerns affect your job performance or worsen, you can apply for short-term disability now and apply later for long-term benefits if necessary. Contact us immediately to explore your options if you’re terminated before you can file a long-term claim.

Please note that Share Lawyers cannot offer employment law services to unionized individuals.

Our Employment Lawyers Work for People, Not Companies

Share Lawyers is a Canadian employment law firm representing individuals (employees) in many aspects of employment law, supporting those who have been wrongfully or constructively dismissed, fired, terminated, or severed from their employment and have been unfairly compensated following relevant employment legislation and case law. Our employment lawyers DO NOT represent any companies, and we do not work on behalf of any employers. In over 35 years of business, our Toronto employment lawyers have worked with many employees, represented disadvantaged people, and made it our goal to ensure things are handled correctly in accordance with workplace law.

Tammy’s story

Tammy was struggling: she lost her income after a constructive dismissal. When she hired the employment law lawyers at Share Lawyers, we were able to take on her case and win. She didn’t have to pay anything until she received her settlement. This took a massive weight off her shoulders so she could continue her life.
