Employment Lawyers For The National Capital Region
For most of us, the workplace is the centre of our lives, or at least of significant importance. It's not just the place where we make money to pay for our needs; it's where we spend most of our waking hours, where much of our social life happens, and where we get a sense of who we are. It's why one of the first things people ask when they meet someone new is, "What do you do for a living?"
When something goes wrong at work, it can affect every other part of our lives.
The employment relationship is built upon a contract, one between you and your employer. We can help you navigate through the legalese.
We can help you simplify legal workplace obligations so that you can focus on what matters: your business.
Better Workplaces For Everyone
Our lawyers have worked with employers and employees for a number of years and have seen a wide variety of legal and practical difficulties arise and be resolved. We represent:
We help workers at the beginning, middle and end of their jobs. This includes reviewing your employment contract and helping you negotiate for a better agreement if possible, dealing with harassment and unsafe working conditions, and helping you if you have been fired or forced to quit. We can help you understand what you are entitled to, and advocate for your rights.
We help employers maintain a productive working environment and protect themselves from liability. We can educate you on your own rights and obligations with respect to your employees, and help you deal with difficult employees or situations in a way that protects your business interests and your bottom line, and helps you avoid lawsuits.
We understand that for many of our clients, expense is a consideration, and offer a free 30-minute telephone consultation as well as a variety of payment and fee options.
At Vey Willetts LLP, we focus exclusively on employment law. We help employees and employers make things right when they go wrong. We provide legal guidance to make workplaces more productive and positive, and to resolve conflicts efficiently and cost-effectively.
