What We Do

Employment Law

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

We are Toronto employment lawyers, serving clients in Ontario and across Canada. Our employment lawers offer a free consultation and provide professional legal advice around employment law as well as disability law. There are no fees unless you win.*

Have you been fired from your employment? Forced to quit your job? 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 where an individual may require legal representation or professional legal advice.

Most of us spend a lot of our lives at our place of employment, so when a workplace dispute arises or workplace rights are ignored, the effects can be emotionally and financially devastating. Our Toronto employment lawyers have been helping people fight for what they are entitled to for over 35 years. Our labour and employment law firm has decades of experience in representing individuals (employees) in claims where they have been treated unfairly, been denied their employment rights, or have claims for compensation - including short term disability and long term disability claims.

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

Our employment lawyers represent individuals

We are a Canada employment law firm that represents 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 who have been unfairly compensated in accordance with 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, representing people who have been put at a disadvantage, and make it our goal to make sure things are dealt with in the right way in accordance with workplace law.

Disability Lawyers in Toronto, proudly serving clients in Ontario and across Canada

Are you looking for a disability lawyer to fight for your rights? Our law firm has unmatched experience in disability law and we don't let provincial borders stop us from helping you in your time of need. Your insurance company has a presence throughout Canada and it makes sense to hire a disability law firm that has a true expertise in disability law and has a national presence too. Your insurance company knows who we are and knows that we won’t back down.

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 are different from other law firms dealing with employment law and labour law because we work on contingency and you do not have to pay any fees unless you win.* There are no upfront costs and there are no fees until we settle your case. Everything is results-driven, and 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 are not able to offer a contingency fee retainer, we will discuss the other options with you.

Employment and disability

We represent many clients who have been terminated from their jobs as a result of being unable to work due to illness or disability. You may feel that pushing yourself to continue to work is the right thing to do. However if your day-to-day work is suffering because of your symptoms or your health is declining because you are pushing yourself too hard, then it is best to apply for your short term disability and then your long term disability benefits. If you have been terminated from your job before you are able to submit a long term disability claim, contact us right away to discuss your situation further.

Please note that Share Lawyers is not able to offer employment law services to unionized individuals.

Free consultation

Regardless of what employment issue you are dealing with, we will talk you through all of your options — free of charge. It’s important to be informed about the employment process and to know your rights.

No fees unless you win your case

We understand your situation and that paying for an employment lawyer can feel out of reach. That is why we offer a free consultation, why there are no upfront costs to you, and why there are no fees unless you win your case. Even if you are unable to work, you’re not alone. We believe in your case, which is why we only get paid when you do.


When you work with us, you get guidance and tools to help you along the way. You will become a member of a privileged group of clients that have access to our hub, called Life reBUILDER™, exclusively from Share Lawyers. It offers six unique services to help rebuild your life and get you back on track, beginning with the expertise of a full legal team all working for you.

Tammy’s story

Tammy was struggling and had lost her income after a constructive dismissal. After hiring the employment law lawyers at Share Lawyers, we were able to take on her case and win. She didn’t have to pay of anything until she received her settlement. This took a huge weight off of her shoulders, and now she’s able to continue on with her life.

We’re here to support you during this difficult time
