If you are terminated “without cause”, your employer will likely offer you a “package” including some termination pay. We recommend you have a lawyer review this for you before accepting.
In such a case, we advise you to politely tell your employer that you would like to have their offer reviewed by a lawyer with experience in this area of the law. Our highly skilled team of professionals would be happy to meet with you to discuss your options.

The Employment Standards Code and Human Rights Act prohibit employers from laying off, terminating, discriminating against, or even asking employees to resign because of pregnancy, childbirth, or taking maternity or parental leave.

Canadian courts have awarded additional damages for an employer’s attempt to terminate an employee in situations like this. It is strongly advised for you to speak with a lawyer to discuss your specific situation.

The Alberta Human Rights Code prohibits discrimination on the grounds of race, religious beliefs, color, gender, gender identity, physical disability, mental disability, and age (with some qualifications). If you believe that you have been the victim of such discrimination, contact one of our lawyers to discuss your options.
In many cases, we will take employment matters on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we only get paid as a percentage of your recovery when you get paid. In this area of the law, our contingency rate only applies to any additional settlement or judgment that we are able to obtain for you.
“Constructive dismissal” is when an employee is forced to resign due to the employer creating an intolerable work environment. Since the employee is being forced into resigning, it is seen as a termination by the employer and the employee is entitled to a severance package. Contact one of our employment lawyers to discuss your option.
The Limitations Act typically provides a two-year limitation to sue from when you knew or ought to have known about a claim. Contact one of our lawyers to discuss your rights well in advance of this deadline.
