• Federal Government
Franklin Law is currently getting representation requests from an unprecedented number of employees who work in the federal sector.  Of the three federal sector employees that Franklin Law is currently representing, one worked for a security guard company and is in the process of filing a complaint under the Canadian Human Rights Act, another worked in the banking industry and has already filed an Unjust Dismissal Complaint under the Canada Labour Code, and another worked in the aerospace industry and has already filed a Duty of Fair Representation Complaint under the Canada Labour Code.  While the Canadian Human Rights Code and Canada Labour Code are similar to Ontario’s Human Rights Code and Employment Standards Act, 2000, there are some key procedural and substantive differences, particularly with respect to how quickly a worker must file his or her complaint.  If you work in the federal sector and want frank legal advice about how best to deal with difficulties that you are experiencing at work, please visit our website at www.franklinlaw.ca or contact us about booking a consultation at 416-572-8525 or consultation@franklinlaw.ca.
