If your lawyer needs more information, they will contact you by email. Otherwise, they will call at the agreed time to answer your questions and discuss your options.
Your lawyer will present you with a series of options. You can choose to proceed on your own or you can hire your lawyer to proceed on your behalf. If you choose to hire your lawyer, Goodlawyer will cover the cost of the initial Advice Session.

Employment law governs the relationships between employees and employers in non-unionized situations. Unionized situations are covered by labour law. It also falls under the larger area of business law.
Booking an advice session with an employment lawyer can help employees and employers protect themselves before a workplace issue occurs and to ensure they understand their obligations and rights clearly.
Generally, wrongful dismissals occur when an employee is inappropriately terminated with cause or is terminated without cause and is unfairly compensated. The original employment agreement is central to deciding if a termination is wrongful and laws can be different in each province.
Constructive dismissal is a subtle form of wrongful dismissal. This involves an employer sidelining or undermining an employee in an attempt to convince them to leave on their own accord. These situations can be very complex.
Every lawyer has been interviewed and background checked. They must be licensed and receive consistently positive reviews to remain on the platform.
Good lawyers can provide most legal services. The cost of the initial advice session will be deducted from the cost of the larger service.
If you are unsatisfied with the legal advice you receive from your lawyer, Goodlawyer will give you your money back. Simply email [email protected] to request a refund.
You will be able to select the lawyer you want to work with. We partner with lawyers in every major Canadian city, but we can’t guarantee they will be available at all times.
