At KSW Lawyers, we provide a holistic, client-focused approach to law. By focusing on the specific needs of each client, while working together with other lawyers in our firm, we can make holistic recommendations that address the root cause of problems and guide you towards an appropriate course of action.
Whether you’ve had your employment rights violated, want your employment contract reviewed, or are dealing with other employment issues, our South Surrey employment lawyers are here for you. We are a full-service law firm and have represented clients in wrongful dismissal claims, workplace injury, and countless other employment-related matters in various legal avenues.
Our KSW lawyers have over 65 years of employment law experience, including experience litigating at all levels of Court, provincial and federal workplace tribunals, and judicial reviews. We are known throughout South Surrey, the Lower Mainland, and British Columbia for our thorough and professional representation and innovative approach to cases.
The rules and regulations that govern the workplace are ever-evolving and navigating employment law matters can be an overwhelming experience. By contracting a labour lawyer from our firm, we can help you resolve complex employment legal cases by defending your interests and giving you the edge you need to come out on top in employment-related disputes and litigation.
Because we have extensive experience in employment and labour law, we can identify issues before they arise, provide guidance on new issues that arise, draft contracts to protect your interests and defend your rights if necessary. We also have extensive knowledge of alternative dispute resolution methods and will work to settle disputes amicably.
If you're starting a new job, changing jobs, or leaving your current position for any reason, it's important to make sure your employment contract is airtight. If you need assistance interpreting your current situation, negotiating with an employer, severance package review, or developing a plan for moving forward after leaving your current position, we can help.
We take a thorough approach when it comes to advising employees regarding termination cases. Whether you feel like you're facing wrongful dismissal, experiencing problems with severance pay and compensation, or other related issues, our Employment and Labour group takes the time to understand where you're coming from and seek the best course of action with the least amount of stress.
The BC Employment Standards Act establishes the rules that most British Columbia workplaces must observe. These laws are in place to ensure the fair treatment of employees and protect their legal rights. If you believe your current or former employer has breached these standards, our legal advisors can give you guidance on your case and provide legal representation.
Injuries in the workplace can severely impact your life, your career, and your long-term wellness. When a WorkSafeBC claim is refused or disputed, the appeal proceedings are difficult and time-consuming. It is a time-sensitive and complex process ruled by minutiae that requires a thorough knowledge of rules, policies, and assessment programs. Our WCB group can provide you with sound advice and support you through the claims and appeals process.
While employers do need certain information from you for specific administrative reasons such as payroll, your privacy is still protected under the law. The Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) sets out how private sector organizations can collect, use, and disclose personal information. If you believe your employer has inappropriately used your private information, or otherwise infringed on your privacy rights, we can assist you in evaluating your options.
Employment Insurance & Canadian Pension Plan claims are complicated. Whether you’re submitting a claim, looking for a ruling, or appealing a previous decision, we can help. We stay up to date with the changing regulations and can support you in seeking the compensation that you're entitled to.
The BC Human Rights Code gives employees the right to a safe and respectful workplace, free from discrimination and harassment -- especially harassment based on protected characteristics such as gender, sexual orientation, age, race, etc. If you've experienced discrimination and/or harassment in the workplace, we understand how stressful and upsetting it can be, as well as how difficult it is to determine whether you have a case and should pursue legal action. Our lawyers have extensive experience in human rights law and are here to advocate for you.
