An employment agreement is much more than just an agreement to provide work in exchange for remuneration. It is not, as noted recently by the Supreme Court of Canada, a “simple commercial exchange in the marketplace of goods and services.”
An employment agreement is like a blueprint to the employment relationship. It sets out the parameters, entitlements, obligations and restrictions in a relationship between an employer and an employee.
Work should be a place of productivity and enjoyment. However, sometimes an employer will make changes to your job responsibilities that go beyond what is legally acceptable. Employees may experience working environments that are unsafe, or where there is discrimination and harassment. Worse, some employers make changes to your job with the intention of pressuring you to quit.
Independent Contractor Agreement
If you are a business receiving a service, or a worker providing temporary service, an independent contractor agreement can be enormously helpful in preventing misunderstandings or confusion in your business relationship, temporary though it may be.
The Disability Lawyers at Haber Lawyers are experienced in numerous aspects of disability law including long term disability claims, human rights claims, and employment law.
The skillful lawyers at Haber Lawyers represent employees who have experienced human rights violations at work and during the hiring process.
If you are an employer in Ontario we highly recommend that your business create and implement policies that address workplace discrimination, and accommodation of disabilities.
Long Term Disability Lawyers
Long Term Disability (LTD) claims are paid out by insurance companies. The language used in their contracts can be incredibly vague and difficult to understand. Elusiveness in language allows for more opportunity to reject claims based on the way terms are worded.
Policies & Procedures
An employment lawyer from Haber Lawyers will assist you in drafting policies and procedures that ensure your business runs legally and effectively.
Wrongful Termination Lawyers
Wrongful termination describes a situation where an employee is terminated unlawfully. Typically, this means they were let go “without cause” and not given a fair or reasonable severance package.
Bill 168, which came into force in June of 2010, amended the Occupational Health and Safety Act to require most businesses to maintain a workplace violence and harassment policy, and to post them in a conspicuous place. Since Bill 168, we have seen an increasing number of workplace harassment complaints, ranging from sexual harassment to micromanaging and bullying.
