What’s the potential cost of a workplace sexual harassment claim?

It is not surprising that my law firm now fields more calls about sexual harassment claims than ever before.

Daniel A. Lublin is a partner at Whitten & Lublin, Employment & Labour Lawyers, Toronto. When is a resignation a termination in disguise?
