FILIPINO EMPLOYMENT LAWYER: EMPLOYMENT DISPUTES

Our Filipino Employment lawyer understands that it can be unnerving to be involved in employment disputes as this may mean one will end up losing his or her source of livelihood. Employment dispute refers to disagreement between an employer and its employee, usually relating to the employee’s rights.

You have rights under the federal and provincial law, whether you are an employer or an employee, and you may also have rights which have been contractually defined in your specific situation.

Here are four kinds of conflicts that frequently occur in the field of employment law:

1. WRONGFUL TERMINATION

Some of the most complex and stress filled employment law conflicts can be wrongful termination cases. Sometimes these cases placed the work of an employee in limbo. Here in Canada, by law, an employer is allowed to terminate its employee provided that prior written notice is given, meaning that for any cause, an employer can fire any employee as long as no contract is in place and as long as the employer does not breach certain regulations on discrimination and retaliation.

3. DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT CLAIMS

Discrimination, abuse, unequal treatment or harassment by management, co-workers or others on the basis of ethnicity, faith, national origin, sex (including sexual orientation or gender identity), pregnancy, age or disability of an individual

Retaliation when an employee made a workplace discrimination report or assisted with a probe or litigation for job discrimination

2. WAGE DISPUTES

This form of litigation happens when an employer is accused of not compensating an employee properly for their time on the job. This could involve not paying staff for overtime or tips received or not having occasional pay breaks. Employers must also pay minimum wages to its staff. $14.00 per hour is the Ontario minimum wage.

4. SEVERANCE AGREEMENTS

This is a common employment dispute matter. In exchange for signing a contract that includes non-disclosure or non-compete agreements, employers may give workers who leave their company certain forms of compensation. If you are a corporation that provides such an arrangement, or if you are an employee who has received one, talking to an attorney will help you understand your contractual rights and fix any concerns that may occur.
