You deserve to have your rights respected throughout all stages of your relationship with your employer. Our goal is to help employees understand their legal rights in all employment contexts, including wrongful dismissal, constructive dismissal, reasonable notice entitlements, severance, and just cause matters. Even if you have not yet decided to hire an employment lawyer, FH&P can help simplify problems, and give clear direction in order to potentially solve them.
Whether you are experiencing a workplace issue related to termination of employment, compensation, severance pay, disability, harassment, discrimination, contracts or resignations, our goal is to resolve matters through productive negotiations, if possible, and by decisive litigation, when it is not.
If your employment rights have been violated, there is a good chance you may be owed compensation for those violations. Let our experienced team of employment lawyers help you evaluate your claim and seek appropriate compensation.
All employees have the right to work in a safe and healthy environment. WorkSafeBC sets minimum health and safety standards that employers must meet. If you are injured on the job, you have the right to be compensated for damages, such as lost income.
It is generally accepted that employees can be disciplined for 'off duty' misconduct involving social media, if the conduct negatively affects the employer's legitimate interests. In certain cases, public criticism of an employer can be sufficient enough for termination.
