Gather your evidence

You might know that you were fired for a reason that goes against your rights.

But sometimes it's hard to show that this is why you were fired.

It's a good idea to get legal advice. But before you talk to a lawyer, try to collect any documents or information that might help you.

When you talk to a lawyer, here are some things that might be helpful:

  • your employment contract, if you have one
  • paperwork your employer gave you when you were fired, including your Record of Employment
  • any letters, memos, or emails that might help to show why you were fired
  • documents or other things that show what you did to claim your rights as a worker
  • any notes you made about things that happened at work, for example, if you were treated in a way that goes against your human rights
  • contact information for co-workers or others who saw or heard things that could help you show why you were fired
