In today’s challenging Ontario economic environment, mergers, closures, outsourcing, “right-sizing,” management upheavals and even arbitrary office politics can suddenly interrupt the careers of the most competent and faithful of employees.
Since 1986, the employment lawyers at WISE LAW have consistently obtained significant compensation for terminated and improperly treated employees in wrongful dismissal, workplace discrimination and other employment law proceedings, mediations and negotiations.
From the shop floor to the boardroom, our clients have occupied careers in finance, dentistry, legal, banking, management, sales, software development, advertizing, marketing, publishing, engineering, architecture, the clergy, pharmacy, nursing, government, accounting, commercial baked goods, food services and distribution, the security sector, hotels and hospitality, manufacturing, contracting, telecommunications, retail and big box, small and larger business and a wide range of additional industries.
We would be glad to confidentially discuss your employment law concerns with you and to advise you as to the best way forward, for you and for your career.
We do offer contingency fee arrangements in appropriate circumstances.
