We believe that knowledge and awareness is power and with the right kind of support, compliance with employment law can lead to a stable workforce.
Our team comprises leading employment lawyers with years of experience, who work with both employees and employers to address workplace matters and disputes.
Sexual harassment takes place at an alarming rate in workplaces across Canada. We work with clients to resolve these disputes, whether that means filing complaints or helping victims receive fair severance packages.
At Advocation, we support both employers and employees in ensuring that there are adequate compensation and employee benefit schemes in place. We help you ensure compliance with regional employment laws, wherever your offices may be.
Many employees are unsure what to do in the face of an abrupt or unfair dismissal. We work with them to ensure that their severance packages are fair and are valued appropriately. In the past, we’ve even added more than $80,000 to final settlements in certain cases.
Through the type of support we provide at Advocation, we help you ensure that your working conditions are fair, mutually beneficial and contribute to personal empowerment. Our guidance can be tailored to either employees or employers.
Workplace harassment is not limited to sexual harassment. At Advocation, we help you take action and work towards creating a safe, healthy, and respectful working environment, free from bullying and physical and mental stress.
We help employers and employees when it comes to workplace investigations into various matters and disputes. Here, we provide the legal guidelines against which these investigations can be conducted and assist with evidence-gathering and case-building.
At Advocation, equal pay is an area of employment law we’re very passionate about. We help both employers and employees ensure that there are equal pay opportunities in place and provide legal advice and support in instances when these practices aren’t followed.
Age discrimination is a serious issue in many workplaces. We work towards ensuring there’s equal opportunity for all by ensuring that anti-age discrimination policies are in place and help employees dealing with discriminatory practices of this nature.
This a major area of contention between employers and employees in workplaces across Canada. We help companies draft these clauses and also work with employees who may be facing disciplinary or legal action without just cause.
Workplace discrimination is strictly proscribed by Canadian law. We not only help employers bolster their anti-discrimination practices and policies but also provide support to employees who may find themselves being discriminated against on various grounds.
Whistleblower policies may be a complicated area of regulation for many businesses. At Advocation, we provide support in formulating fair policies for the workplace and assist employees who may find themselves dealing with whistleblower retaliation.
One of our core areas of work is to protect professionals from unfair working practices and policies, discriminatory behavior or harassment at work. Whatever guise it takes, our goal is to help them work in a safe and respectful environment.
Employment law can be complex, but at Advocation, we believe that this should not stop you from creating a positive and powerful work environment.
