Frequently Asked Questions About Harassment
Is my employer obligated to stop my harassment?
Your employer is required to prepare a workplace harassment policy and has a duty to address violence and harassment when it takes place in the workplace. This includes violence against employees by members of the public as well as between employees in the workplace.
Do I Need to Contact my Union First?
If you are a member of a union, it may be beneficial to speak with a union representative about your termination. You do not need to contact your union prior to obtaining advice from a wrongful firing attorney. Consider obtaining the assistance of a wrongful dismissal lawyer that regularly works with unionized employees.
Will I Get a Settlement?
The amount of money you will receive from a termination package will vary based on the amount of time you have spent with a company. Other factors may also play into the monetary amount of your termination package. To get the termination package you deserve, always speak with a wrongful dismissal lawyer before signing a termination package.
