Toronto Employment Lawyers representing Employees
As an employee, it is important to ensure that you receive fair treatment at your workplace whether you are beginning a new position, currently employed, or severing an existing working relationship.
The employment law team at Mills & Mills LLP has over 130 years of experience working with both employers and employees. As such, our clients benefit from the knowledge and skills we have acquired from working on employment issues from both sides.
Trusted Advice for Newly Employed or Recently Terminated Employees
At the start of a new position, our lawyers can assist with reviewing your employment contract in order to maximize the benefits to you. We will also advise you of your rights and obligations under the contract, and represent you in any contract negotiations that may be required.
In the event of termination, we will provide assistance by helping to ensure that you receive fair notice in accordance with your length of service, or pay in lieu of notice. If your notice and/or severance payment does not sufficiently match your entitlement, we will negotiate with your former employee for additional pay.

- Drug testing
- Workplace violence
- Hostile work environments
- Human rights violations
- Employment standards
- Pensions, benefits and disability
