Employment Law

Employment law governs the relationship between employers and employees without covering those whose relationship is the subject of a collective bargaining agreement.

The lawyers at Sullivan Festeryga have experience in advising both employers and employees regarding employment law matters and outcomes that occur while employment is ongoing or after the employment has come to an end.

“Unfortunately, not all employment relationships end amicably. In those situations, we negotiate or litigate as required to ensure our client’s rights are protected.”

The relationship between employer and employee comes with responsibilities and duties that fall on the shoulders of both parties. A breach by either party can damage this relationship. If the parties want to continue the relationship, we offer assistance by identifying and negotiating terms or conditions to ensure a positive outcome. If the relationship ends, we will ensure your rights are protected, whether you are an employer or the employee.

We have expertise in actions regarding termination of employment and compliance with the Employment Standards Act and applicable common law precedents. We are well-versed in the issues that arise under the Ontario Human Rights Code and applicable health and safety legislation.

Our clients include individuals as well as businesses of any size.
