3. Try to get legal advice

If you're fired, it's a good idea to get legal advice.

A lawyer with experience in employment law can help by giving you advice about:

A lawyer who knows employment law can tell you how much a court might order. With a lawyer's help, you might be able to agree on the amount of notice with your employer. An employer might want to avoid the cost of going to court.

Finding a lawyer

The Law Society Referral Service can give you the name of a lawyer or paralegal you can consult with for free, for up to 30 minutes.

JusticeNet is a program for Canadians with low or moderate incomes. It connects people with lawyers and paralegals who charge lower legal fees based on your income.

There are community legal clinics across Ontario that provide free legal services to people with low incomes. Some clinics help people with work-related problems. And if a clinic can't help you, they may be able to refer you to someone in your community who can.
