Vancouver Employment Law Information

Getting Through Labor and Employment Law Issues

Individuals are entitled to fair treatment during the course of their employment. However, situations at the workplace often occur that make people uncomfortable. If you are dealing with a labor and employment issue at work and want to learn your options under the law, you should reach out to a Vancouver employment lawyer.

Different Labor and Employment Law Issues

Legal problems at the workplace can happen in a variety of ways. Labor and Employment Law related issues often involve sexual harassment, employment discrimination and wrongful termination of employment relating to gender, age, religion, disability, pregnancy, national origin or race.

It goes without saying, your job is one of the most important things in your life. Whether you are dealing with discrimination, harassment or a wage dispute, speak with an experienced employment attorney to ensure you understand the rights as an employee.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it's possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.
