For many years clients have been turning to Gary Bennett in Mississauga for advice related to labour and employment law. His depth of experience includes working with both businesses and employees and unions to providing perspective and insightful legal advice. Mr. Bennett understands that finding a lawyer you trust can be challenging and offers the following tips and considerations.

Why you need an employment lawyer

Employment-related issues such as terminations, non-competition agreements, workplace discrimination or harassment, wages and benefits, health and safety, and family and medical leaves often lead to disputes between a business and an employee, or employees. Employment layers advise clients on the merits of the case, the costs of settlement or litigation, and recommend the appropriate next steps.

When looking for an employment lawyer, consider the following questions:

  • How does your lawyer stay abreast of changing laws and regulations? It is important to work with a lawyer who learns and understands changes in the laws by updating skills and professional education to ensure a full understanding of current employment laws.
  • Does your lawyer work on the case personally or will my matters be passed onto associates or paralegals? Most clients want to be assured they will work directly with the lawyer they hire. In some cases, it may be cost effective for your lawyer to delegate routine tasks to associates or paralegals who can provide valuable legal services to you under the supervision of your lawyer but at a fraction of the cost.
  • Ask what percentage of the lawyer’s cases are tried in court versus being settled? There’s a time and place for both settlement and trial and you may not know which is best at the onset of your case. You also want to ensure that your lawyer has the experience to handle both scenarios.
  • What is your fee structure? The cost of legal advice varies greatly, depending on the type of case, the length of time it takes to resolve the case, and the type of fee structure your lawyer has in place. Be sure to discuss fees early so you’re not surprised.
