At SpringLaw one of our goals is to educate people about their legal rights in the workplace and upon termination, but this can be hard to do on a large scale. We want to reach many more people than those who we are able to serve individually. This is one reason why we are so active on our blog and why we have written our new e-book, So you’ve been fired, now what?  

When You Can’t Afford a Lawyer…But You Want to Know if You Have a Case

Let’s face it, lawyers can be expensive! This often feels particularly true for someone who has just lost their job. For some, putting down money for a legal retainer or wracking up a legal bill in order to figure out their rights when they’ve just lost their income source is simply not an option. We get a lot of inquiries every day from people in just this position. Many will decide that they just can’t afford a lawyer and will simply sign off on their termination package, or walk away from their jobs without ever really understanding their legal rights and what they may be leaving on the table. We wrote So you’ve been fired, now what? for these people, with the hopes that this would happen less often.

This book is designed to answer questions and provide information so that those who have been recently fired can educate themselves and figure out if they might have a case worth pursuing. It also provides information about options on what to do, from going to the Human Rights Tribunal, making an Employment Standards Complaint, negotiating directly with a former employer and information about when talking to a lawyer might really be necessary.

So you’ve been fired, now what?

Our ebook will help terminated employees to answer the following types of questions:

  • What are my rights?
  • What do I do now?
  • Should I sign?
  • Did I get enough?
  • Is my employer even allowed to do this?
  • Have I been treated fairly?
  • What about how I was harassed?
  • What about the discrimination I faced?
  • What about that non-compete agreement I signed?
  • What are my entitlements?
  • How can I get paid what I’m owed?

We will also help those who don’t even know what questions to ask.

If you or someone you know has recently lost their job and has some of these questions, then head on over to our page to learn more.
