Losing one’s job is a tough experience. Whether you are a seasoned professional or new in your position, the idea of losing a job can leave a dark stain on one’s professional career and can greatly affect one’s confidence. This can be made worse by the prospect of losing a job wrongfully or being dismissed without due cause. As this period in one’s career can be a trying time, our legal professionals will convey your best options to a tribunal, court, or mediation session by using evidence, experience, and knowledge of Ontario’s employment legislation.
If you believe you have been relieved from your position wrongfully, our team will discuss your options with you, by going over any severance packages, dispute resolution packages, negotiation, and possible wrongful dismissal litigation actions. The team at Tailor law will work with you to ensure that your case is represented in the best possible way.
Taking time from work to prepare for the birth of your child can be an exciting yet intimidating point in time of your career and personal life. While pregnant employees have the right to take pregnancy leave of up to 17 weeks of unpaid time, there are other benefits which pregnant employees are entitled to.
Pregnant employees can also take parental leave, which entitles new parents leave of up to 35 weeks’ leave. Parental leave and pregnancy leave are unrelated, so if you are an employee and you are about to give birth, or you have given birth, you are entitled to take both pregnancy and parental leave.
If you believe you have been penalized in any way, in regards to your current or past pregnancy, please get in touch with our legal team to go over your options for advice and representation.
