If only we had a crystal ball! Every employment file is different, and depending on how the employer wishes to proceed will determine our advice on your next steps. If we are able to negotiate something within a series of letters and phone calls with the employer’s lawyer, we may be able to resolve your case in a few weeks to a few months.
When it comes to cost, we will work with you to provide realistic expectations at every step. Obviously costs can vary depending on how long your matter takes to resolve, but we have a number of alternate fee arrangements available that may make it easier for you to make decisions.
If however things take a challenging turn and you decide to litigate, or move through the human rights tribunal, these can be much lengthier processes with a lot of moving pieces at play. Rest assured though that even in those processes there may be room for negotiation and for bringing about an earlier settlement. We will always keep you up-to-date on your timelines and what the next steps might look like.
