Labour Law deals with the relationship between an employer and his employees. In the workplace, it can cover anything from harassment, suspensions, dismissals, accidents or even contract negotiations.
When to consult?
Are you a victim of harassment in the workplace? Perhaps you’re considering suspending an employee? Were you dismissed from work and feel it was unjustified? Perhaps you’d like advice concerning an workplace accident or your contract? Whether you’re an employee or an employer, all these situations would be best resolved with a seasoned Labour lawyer.
Harassment in the workplace
Harassment in the workplace is a serious offense that can greatly affect your wellbeing, your mental health and your productivity. Harassment situations should be dealt with immediately to avoid further deterioration of the problem. Aside from diligently documenting every detail of what is happening daily, it’s important to consult an experienced professional that understands how to approach the situation. A Labour Law attorney will guide you on how to proceed, plus help you build your case.
Suspension or dismissal
As an employer, you may need to suspend an employee at any given time. Consulting with a Labour attorney will ensure you’re properly guided throughout this delicate process.
The same situation applies if you’re considering dismissing an employee. You must be properly informed regarding factors that would warrant a dismissal and be well aware of the steps to follow before you beginning the process. A Labour attorney can answer all of your questions.
On the other hand, if your employer suspends you but you believe your work did not warrant this decision, or if you feel you’ve been wrongfully dismissed, a Labour attorney can handle your case and work to protect your rights.
Health and safety in the workplace
Are you the victim of a workplace accident? A Labour attorney can help you determine whether or not you would be eligible for a CSST (Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail) claim or even to request and obtain higher indemnities than those currently provided to you. The Labour attorney can also inform you with regards to any subject that is related to workplace health and safety.
If your job depends on a contract, a Labour attorney can help you negotiate optimal work conditions as well as other inclusions that could protect you and be advantageous in the future.
