Legal Services for Independent Contractors & Employees Including Managers & Executives in the Greater Toronto Area
We help you with terminations, layoffs, constructive dismissals, wrongful dismissals, disability claims, severance & compensation packages & more.
How we help +
Hello, I’m Kevin Marshall. My legal team has been helping independent contractors and employees of all kinds to win legal disputes with their employers for over 20 years. In fact, I myself started out as a blue collar worker many years ago before I became a lawyer, and my father and mother both came from the working class.
This has allowed me to truly empathize with our clients and really understand their situation and priorities. Whether you’re dealing with a termination, wrongful dismissal, disability, or an unfair compensation package or severance package, we know you’re likely going through a vulnerable and stressful time, because of the impact on your income. Luckily for you, we know all these cases inside out.
Get maximum results from your claims & compensation packages.
We know that losing some or all of your income is devastating, but you’re in good hands with Kevin Marshall’s legal team because we have a track record of getting maximum results for our legal clients. We’ve been through this legal process of helping employees get their deserved compensation so many times now, that we often know the questions you’re going to ask, before you ask them.
Our vast experience also ensures that you get the maximum compensation you deserve in court or directly from your employer. It doesn’t matter if it’s a wrongful dismissal, a termination without cause, some form of workplace disability claim or even harassment you’re going through at work. The reasons we’re able to get you the best possible results, is because we understand exactly what needs to be presented to all the parties involved, at every step of the way, in order to get maximum compensation.
It’s also important to know that we only serve clients who have a valid case, because we do not believe in leading people astray. If you have no case, we’ll be transparent and tell you right away.
Employment lawyer who understands your employer.
One of the other reasons why we’re able to get employees and independent contractors maximum results in their legal disputes with employers, is that we also have employers as our clients. We obviously cannot serve an employer and employee of the same company in the same case, because that’s unethical and illegal.
However, we do serve both employers and the workforce on various employment related legal disputes in the Greater Toronto Area. The reason this is so beneficial to employees and independent contractors, is because we now have a deep understanding about how employers approach all these kinds of legal disputes. Now, because we know how employers are incentivised and how they usually react to most legal disputes, this helps us get maximum compensation packages, severance packages and claim settlements in the shortest amount of time possible.
Wide variety of employment legal services including dismissals, terminations, disability claims, and proactive services such as contracts.
If you’re concerned that your employment dispute may be too complex, or you’re unsure of whether or not you even have a chance at getting any form of compensation, we can help. We’ll take a look at your situation and right away tell you whether you have a chance at getting compensated, and what kind of case you’re looking at. It could be any of the following: Temporary lay-off, constructive dismissal, breach of contract, wrongful dismissal for cause, wrongful dismissal without cause.
You may also be dealing with another type of more physically or psychologically relevant employment claim such as workplace sexual harassment & assault, occupational health and safety claims, disability claims (short term & long term), Canada Pension Plan disability claims, labour board claims and Workers Safety and Insurance Board claims (WSIB).
Proactive legal services help you avoid employment contract issues.
Whatever your situation is, we’ll help you establish the right claim, and see if you’ve got a good chance at getting compensation and victory. We also offer proactive services to make sure you avoid any future problems that employees and independent contractors often face. We can help you review your employment contract as you enter a new job, and make sure that all the right clauses are in place to keep you and your income safe.
These proactive services where we help you assess and optimize your employment contracts are also available for independent contractors, gig workers and sole proprietorships. Whatever your employment issues are, we’re well equipped to help you get the compensation you deserve as well as prevent any future issues by drafting solid agreements and employment contracts. If you're in the Greater Toronto Area or anywhere in Ontario, you're in good hands with Kevin Marshall's legal team.
If you've been terminated or treated unfairly at work, you're likely feeling let down, financially vulnerable and even betrayed. We understand. We've been helping people like you for over 20 years to get the compensation, workplace security, peace of mind and justice you deserve. If you've got a workplace issue, we've got your back every step of the way. You have my word.

We're here to help.
Have a question?
Cases we help you with
If you've been temporarily laid off and feel uncertain about your future income, you're not alone. Most employees feel the same way, along with feeling confused about what to do next. We'll give you clarity by helping you assess your options and make the right decision based on your income needs and your relationship with your employer.
Has your workplace made changes that make you uncomfortable working there? Maybe your hours have been cut or some new procedures put in place that you don't feel are fair? If your concerns have gone unheard and you're considering leaving, we'll look at your case together and see if you're eligible for compensation.
Breach of contract
Many employers make changes to employees' working conditions or unfair reductions to working hours, leaving employees in a tough spot. If you feel like your boss hasn't been living up to their end of your work agreement, we can help you stand up for yourself while still keeping your job.
Wrongful dismissal for cause
Losing your job with cause can be financially devastating. If you've been let go from work and you believe the cause for your termination isn't 100% valid, we'll look at your situation together and see if we can salvage your package.
Wrongful dismissal without cause - “fired with a package”
If you've lost your job and received a package that you feel isn't fair, you may be one of the many employees who are being taken advantage of by their employer. We'll help you carefully assess several critical factors of your package and see if there's an opportunity to get the added compensation you deserve.
Employment contracts for employees
Most employees are quick to sign on the dotted line when they land a new job. This often means they're signing documents that aren't always clear to them, leaving them vulnerable to various problems down the road. If you're starting a new job and need help understanding important clauses in your agreement such as termination or privacy clauses, we'll help you gain clarity and start your new job with confidence.
Work contracts for gig workers & contractors
Are you entering the workplace as a gig worker for the first time and need help understanding your work contract? Maybe you're a seasoned independent contractor with a more complex contract than usual, and you need to make sure you're not missing anything. Whatever your situation, we'll make sure your contract serves your best interests. You'll gain peace of mind, and avoid unexpected problems down the road.
Workplace sexual harassment & assault
Are you dealing with a colleague or boss that's making you uncomfortable in a sexual way? Dealing with sexual harassment and abuse at work can be a very sensitive issue that can take over your life. We want you to know that we understand that. You probably have questions about your job security, reputation and many more issues. We'll help you gain clarity and take the immediate next steps to improve your situation and take legal action if necessary.
Occupational health and safety claims
Are you worried that your current workplace environment poses certain risks and dangers that jeopardize your health and safety? Do you fear that your employer is not making the necessary changes to adapt to the new Covid-19 situation? We can help you stand up for your rights to a safe and healthy workplace environment so you can feel comfortable going to work everyday.
Disability Claims (Short term & long term)
Have you lost your income due to a disability? Maybe your disability claim has been denied? If so, we know this can cause serious financial issues that can impact all areas of your life. Over 20 years of experience in injury law means we know exactly how to deal with insurance companies and medical evidence to get you the maximum benefits you deserve.
Canada Pension Plan Disability claims
Seriously debilitating injuries and disabilities are devastating and can change your life forever. If you've been denied your CPPD claim, you're likely feeling frustrated and helpless with no foreseeable source of income. We help you take the right steps to maximise your chances of a successful claim, and gain your much needed peace of mind.
Labour board claims
Do you feel your union hasn't been living up to their obligations? Have they been treating you unfairly? We know that taking on a powerful organization can feel overwhelming and even helpless. We've been helping the underdog for over 20 years and working with us will give you the best chances of regaining the workplace conditions and terms you were promised.
Workers Safety and Insurance Board claims (WSIB)
Unfortunately, the WSIB claim process is notoriously difficult for employees to navigate. WIth so many steps and intricacies along the way, most employees' claims get denied, leaving them feeling annoyed and frustrated. We're very familiar with this process and we'll guide you every step of the way to get the maximum claim possible.
