Many business disputes arise in the workplace. Our lawyers have extensive experience in wrongful dismissal cases on behalf of both employers and employees. Our employer clients include manufacturing and distribution companies, automobile dealerships and other business. We have litigated, negotiated and mediated settlements for senior executives and other employees of small, medium and large corporations. We have also acted on complex matters involving non-competition agreements, breach of trade secrets, independent contracts, breach of fiduciary duty involving client lists and related matters.

The lawyers at Ellyn Law are also available to assist employers in conducting independent investigations into employee conduct.  When alleged employee misconduct arises, it can be expensive and time-consuming to conduct the types of investigations required under law.  At Ellyn Law we can conduct those investigations for you, providing an unbiased and practical report upon which you can base your decisions.


Igor Ellyn has been a speaker at professional conferences on employment law. Some of his articles dealing with employment law issues may be found under the Publications tab of this website, where you will also find Barry Fisher’s interesting article on wrongful dismissal mediation. Mr. Ellyn was also counsel on a precedent setting case which was one of cornerstones of the principle of “Wallace damages”.


Orie Niedzviecki has acted for both employers and employees.  Orie’s employer clients often call for a quick consultation regarding problems with employees or proper notice to provide upon terminating an employee.  Wrongfully dismissed employees benefit from Orie’s experience in choosing between the various forums available – Superior Court, Small Claims Court, the Human Rights Tribunal, or the Ministry of Labour – to find the quickest and most cost effective method of resolving their claim.
