Frequently asked questions

What is employment law?

Employment law governs the relationships between employees and employers in non-unionized situations. Unionized situations are covered by labour law.

Why should I consult an employment lawyer?

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.

What is a wrongful dismissal?

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.

What is a constructive dismissal?

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.

How do I know my lawyer is good?

Every lawyer has been interviewed and background checked. They must be licensed and receive consistently positive reviews to remain on the platform.

What if I realize I have a larger legal need after my advice session?

Good lawyers can provide most legal services. The cost of the initial advice session will be deducted from the cost of the larger service.

What if my lawyer can't answer my questions?

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.

Will I be matched with a lawyer in my city?

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.
