Employment Law

Employment law deals with the legal regulation of employees and employers. At Woynarski Szymura Kelly LLP, our comprehensive employment law practice allows us to offer a full slate of employment related legal services to both employees and employers. We have extensive experience in helping both understand their legal rights and obligations arising out of Ontario's employment and human rights legislation.

One of the most complex areas of employment law is the termination of employment, including wrongful dismissal, constructive dismissal and dismissal for cause. When an employee is terminated, the law prescribes that employees and employers have various rights and obligations. By working closely with our clients, we are able to guide them through this difficult and complex process. For example, we work with employers to ensure that their termination and severance packages comply with their relevant legal obligations. We also work with terminated employees to ensure that they receive appropriate termination and severance packages.

In addition to dealing with the termination of employment, we also have experience:

  • Drafting and reviewing employment, independent contractor and consulting contracts;
  • Dealing with the Ontario Human Rights Board;
  • Providing advice for issues stemming from employee discipline, maternity leave, employment insurance, and employment standards;
  • Litigating employment law matters.

Our extensive experience allows us to assist our clients in all of their employment law needs.
