Employment Law Claims During Long-Term Disability

While pursuing a claim for long-term disability (LTD), it is not uncommon for claimants to encounter new problems surrounding their actual employment. An employer may take advantage of your disability to terminate your job, or when you are dismissed, your employer may provide you with insufficient notice or severance. If these or other situations have turned your case into an employment law issue, Lang Lawyers can help.

Protecting Your Employee Rights

A core part of our practice in Toronto, Ontario, is in fighting long-term disability claims. As part of our service, we also provide advice and representation on employment law issues that may arise. We are experienced in navigating such workplace issues as:

  • Wrongful dismissal
  • Lack of termination notice
  • Unfair severance packages
  • Human rights violations
  • Duty to accommodate disability

When employee takes an extended leave from work due to an illness or disability, an employer may attempt to remove the employee from payroll. As lawyers who are experienced in the intersection of long-term disability and employment law, we can step in and find ways to hold your employer off until your LTD claim has been decided upon.

Even if your LTD claim has been approved, your employer may attempt to claim frustration of the employment contract in an effort to evade paying proper termination notice. An employer may also attempt to deduct your LTD benefit amounts from your termination notice. In any of these cases, our lawyers can fight to ensure that you maximize the compensation you deserve.
