Despite laws to protect employees, inequality and discrimination in the workplace still exist. Workers are sometimes compensated unfairly or treated unjustly because of their age, race, sex, religion, colour, disability, or other traits. This may include violations like not receiving overtime pay, being denied promotions, benefits, unequal pay, or other job privileges. Sometimes, employment is denied outright, or wrongful termination occurs.
If you think that you have been the victim of wage and labour violations or employment discrimination, you may be eligible for compensation. An employment lawyer in Burlington may be able to assist you in recovering damages.
Our Burlington employment lawyers advocate for equality and employee rights and have assisted in class action and impact litigation to address systemic discrimination. Contact our legal team today at 416 622-4357 to learn more about how Zaylaw can help with your employment lawsuit.

Finally, it is the worker’s responsibility to guarantee their rights are not violated. Here are some frequent workplace abuses of employees’ rights:

If you bring a claim for employment discrimination, you must show that your employer treated you unfairly since you are a member of a protected class. Race, ethnicity, sex, gender, age, and religious convictions are all examples of this. The majority of job discrimination claims are established by circumstantial evidence demonstrating that the plaintiff was a protected class member and that the basis the employer used to terminate or deny their worker’s rights was just a pretext for discrimination.
