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.
I myself started out as a blue collar worker many years ago before I became a lawyer; my father and mother both came from working class backgrounds. This has allowed me to better empathize with our clients and really understand their situation and priorities.
Whether you’re dealing with a termination, wrongful dismissal, disability, or an unfair severance package, we know you’re likely going through a vulnerable and stressful time, because of the impact on your income. We can help: 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: We have a track record of getting maximum results for our clients.
Our vast experience also ensures that you get the maximum compensation you deserve in court or directly from your employer. We handle wrongful dismissals, terminations with or without cause, workplace disability claims and workplace harassment or sexual assault claims, among others. We’re able to get you the best possible results because we understand what needs to be presented to all parties involved, at every step of the way.
We do not believe in creating false positive expectations. We only serve clients who have a valid case. Otherwise, we’ll be transparent and share the disappointing news right away. We'll do our best to include suggestions that you can pursue on your own.
An Employment lawyer who understands your employer.
We’re able to get employees and independent contractors maximum results because we also have employers as our clients. We cannot, of course, serve an employer and employee of the same company in the same case.
By assisting employer clients, we have gained a deep understanding about how employers approach various 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, pinpoint the problem and tell you whether you can expect to be compensated.
We handle temporary lay-offs, constructive dismissals, breaches of employment contracts, and wrongful dismissals (both for cause and without cause).
You also deal with more complex and sensitive claims, such as harassment (both sexual and non-sexual), sexual 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.
Proactive legal services help you avoid employment contract issues.
We offer proactive services to best ensure you avoid any future workplace problems. 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.
If you are an independent contractor, gig worker or sole proprietorship we can assess and optimize your contracts before you commit to your new working relationship.
Whatever your employment issues are, we’re well equipped to help. Whether 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 may feel let down, 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. We gain satisfaction from helping the little guy.

Have a question?
Cases we help you with
If you've been laid off, you can expect to feel uncertain about the future and 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 to your disadvantage? Have your hours been cut? Have your job duties increased? If your concerns have gone unheard, we'll look at your case together. We'll let you know see if you can work out a fairer arrangement with your employer or are entitled to 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 believe that your union hasn't been living up to its obligations? Have they been treating you unfairly? Taking on a powerful organization can feel overwhelming. We've been helping the underdog for over 20 years. Labour Board claims are difficult; but we will assess your claim and offer helpful suggestions to help you get a fair and reasonable result.
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.
