An employee who is being negatively affected by workplace issues might have grounds to pursue recovery under the law. Diamond & Diamond gives a personalized approach to representation to each one of our clients. Whenever a workplace issue presents legal concerns, we believe that the employee deserves our utmost attention and all of our resources to resolve the issue as effectively as possible.
Constructive Dismissal and Wrongful Termination
When you are illegally terminated or constructively dismissed from your position, most employees do not realize the avenues they have available to them for recovery of compensation. We give your case confidential consideration and help advise you about all of the different aspects of what you might anticipate down the road.
Ontario has very clear laws about the human rights protections available to employees. When these human rights are violated in the workplace, the employer can be held accountable. We are known for pursuing all possible avenues for resolution including arbitration and mediation, while also representing our clients' best interests with regards to litigation.
Any existing agreements in restraint of trade such as those prohibiting competition and beyond, must be evaluated carefully by our lawyers. We have an eye for detail and a deep understanding of what can and cannot be included in these critical documents. A protective strategy to address existing policies or to develop new ones with your best interests in mind is what you can expect when working with your dedicated team at Diamond & Diamond.
