Employment Lawyer Burlington

Successfully Representing Employees in Burlington, Ontario

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.

Types of Employment Rights Violations




Many employees believe that their employer is familiar with and regularly follows labour and employment regulations. In reality, many corporations violate employee rights on a daily basis. While some businesses do this on purpose, others make mistakes. In any case, if they disobey the law, they are engaging in criminal behaviour, and their motives are irrelevant.

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

Non-payment of the minimum wage


Failure to maintain a secure working environment


Keeping incorrect records


Employee misclassification


Presence Discrimination


Employee speech restrictions


Retaliation against persons who register complaints about unethical behaviour


Sexual harassment by employers or coworkers


Termination on unjustified grounds

Zaylaw Employment Law: Our Practice Areas

Discrimination matters




In Burlington, discrimination based on national origin, race, gender,  age, pregnancy, family responsibilities, disability, and other factors is treated very seriously. It can harm your job application, working conditions, remuneration, or promotion opportunities, and it can even get you fired.

It is critical to assert your rights if you are subjected to job discrimination. Our employment attorneys in Burlington can assist you with this.

Whistleblowing & Retaliation




Employers are not allowed by law to retaliate against whistleblowers who report wrongdoing or bring a claim against them for any other reason.

A whistleblower might be fired, demoted, suspended, threatened, or harassed by their company. If you have been retaliated against, our Burlington employment lawyers will tell you of your legal options both before and after you file a complaint.

Employment Contracts

Entering and terminating employment and partnership relationships has considerable legal, commercial, and professional implications.

Our legal team can assist you in negotiating employment contracts and agreements in various situations and defend you if the provisions are violated or you are accused of breaching them.

Separation and Severance Agreements




If your work is coming to an end, you need a severance package that will place you in the best financial position plausible as you are looking for a new job. Our Burlington employment lawyers can help you reach an amicable separation agreement or, if required, launch a lawsuit against your employer.





The employment lawyers at Zayouna Law Firm can assist you in contract negotiations, settlements, and other work-related concerns. Our knowledge of local employment laws and their expertise puts us in an excellent position to represent your best interests throughout any employment negotiation.

Dispute Resolution: Litigation & Arbitration




Our employment lawyers have years of experience in both litigation and arbitration. We’ll assess the employment issue using a range of resources before recommending a solution.

The majority of the time, our legal team is successful in settling the case without going to court.

Class and Individual Representation




We have represented groups of workers in class or collective actions victimized by wage theft by the same employer, and we have had notable success in the past. Our employment lawyers have assisted individuals and groups in federal and state courts.

How We Protect Your Workplace Rights




When you’re in a lawsuit with your boss, it’s easy to feel intimidated. Having a skilled employment lawyer on your side can help you level the playing field and claim your rights. At Zaylaw, we have a lot of experience defending the rights of employees who have had their rights infringed.

Our employment law experts in Burlington can assist you with the following:

  • Know your rights at work and what to expect from your claim
  • File a claim as soon as possible, and we’ll defend you throughout the inquiry.
  • In court and throughout arbitration/mediation, we will represent your interests.
  • Negotiate a reasonable settlement with your boss.
  • Examine your claim of discrimination, harassment, or wrongful termination.
  • Protect yourself from retribution if you file a workers’ compensation claim.
  • Examine your employment contracts for possible problems, such as severance and non-compete provisions.

We have the resources, knowledge, and devotion to fight for your interests, whether you bring a claim against a small business or a major corporation.

Proof to Win An Employment Discrimination Case




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.

Our legal team is committed to providing high-quality, cost-effective employment law services. Call us at 416 622-4357 for a free consultation.
