Unemployment & Job Loss - Legal

Being unemployed is very hard. The financial consequences can be devastating, as well as the emotional distress to individuals, relationships, and families. Despite actively looking for work, Canadian employment statistics estimate that up to 1.3 million people are currently unemployed. (thestar.com). There are employment laws in place in Canada to protect the relationship between employers and employees. If you have recently been laid off or let go from your company, and feel you have been subjected to a wrongful dismissal, or you would like to have your compensation package assessed or are wondering what your legal rights are, there are professionals who can assist you. Employment resource centres offer information and assistance to help with many aspects of unemployment, including job and skills training information, resume writing, interview preparation, and job listings. We know that being unemployed can be overwhelming, and you may not know the best place to start in finding a job, or finding legal resources if you need them. Luckily, we have the resources that can help. You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you.
