Employment Discrimination is Against the Law
Employment discrimination can happen to you at any stage in your career. It's important to know your rights to ensure you don't get pushed around by the big companies, backed by aggressive litigation teams. Canadian law protects employees against discrimination, firing or refusing to hire a potential candidate based on their race, religion, sex, gender, age (in some instances), skin color, or genetic information.
If you feel you have been a target of discriminatory practice, the first step is to hire a lawyer who is familiar with federal and provincial labour and employment law, and recent cases that are similar to your own. From there, we'll explain the next steps you will need to take, and your entitlements under the law. We use our years of combined experience to protect your best interests and give you peace of mind, in and out of court.
What is Unlawful Termination?
An unlawful termination is not specified under its own federal law category. However, many times, discriminatory employer behavior plays a large part in wrongful dismissal cases and is against federal and provincial law.
If you feel you have been let go from your position because of your; age, gender, religion, or color, you may have solid grounds for recourse. Our certified labour lawyers will listen to the specifics of your situation and customize a solid legal plan to defend your interests.
