    There is nothing stopping lawyers without much experience in employment and labour law from professing that they prevail in it, on their websites and in the media. But the reality is that there are few lawyers who exclusively practise workplace law and even fewer who can comfortably call themselves “experts.” Most just dabble in the area, despite professing otherwise.

    This is where Whitten & Lublin Employment and Labour Lawyers can help. Our team of leading lawyers are consistently relied on for their counsel on all types of workplace disputes, including wrongful and constructive dismissals, human rights and harassment suits, severance package negotiations, contracts and post -employment restrictions and more.

    Independent Contractors comprise 25% of the Canadian Workforce.

    A new “law for contractors” is developing in order for workplaces to address the legal issues that arise in this relationship, including hiring contractors, payroll, administering the contractor/employer relationship, performance management, outsourcing contractors, hiring a third party administrator; dismissal issues; tax issues; dealing with government bodies and dealing with tribunals.

    What our clients have to say

    What you see in your first meeting… is what you get. I retained Dan but have witnessed both David Whitten and Daniel Lublin in action on separate matters. Both are best described as “legal land sharks” and are more than capable of holding their own against their opponents regardless of their status or however many they bring to the table. They come prepared and don’t waste time getting to the nuts and bolts of where they need to be. They’re both equipped with rapier whits, a sense of humour and easy to work with. Having witnessed my fair share of Counsellors in the past, these guys are right up there with the best of them.

    I found law firm that was true to its word, and more. Many lawyers claim they “go to court” but that really only means that, if they can’t settle quickly, they will sue and later when pressed, they will also settle. Whitten & Lublin are different. In my case, they actually went to a hearing at court – and won! A judge of the Superior Court of Justice awarded me almost double my employer’s initial offer of severance and a good portion of my legal costs. Whitten & Lublin’s advice along the way was bang on, especially when they counselled me to reject a settlement offer made mid-way through the case because they were confident we would beat it at trial, and we did.
