After being fired from a job, I was absolutely devastated. I was upset because the reason they terminated me was ridiculous and I felt that it was also wrong. I knew they fired me for other reasons than what they stated and had a feeling it had a good bit to do with my disability. I felt like I was discriminated against. I really wasn’t sure what to do or how I could prove that was the real reason. I felt like I needed to prove I wasn’t going to let them walk all over me and get away with something like that.
I talked to a few of my friends that recommended I hire an employment lawyer to help me. I wasn’t sure where to start looking and they didn’t know of any, but told me to search online. I went on Google and searched for employment lawyer in my area. That’s when I found lots of lawyers that offer to represent those people that have been terminated from employment. I looked around at their websites and found some reviews for them online. I was still having a difficult time deciding who to hire. I took my search to Facebook and asked my friends on there. One of my friends told me to look into the OLS Quebec law firm because that was an area they specialized in. I went to that website and got their phone number. I gave them a call to see if I could set up a consultation appointment with them and asked them what I would need in order to get started. They set up my appointment and gave me the things I would need so they could look at it.
After talking to the lawyer at my appointment, I knew I wanted to hire them. They said they would be able to help me and that it definitely seemed that I was discriminated against. They wanted to get some information from the employer and some other things from me in order to get the process started.
Within just a few months the lawyers at OLS Quebec had a settlement offer from my employer. They had enough proof that I was illegally terminated and were able to get a settlement from the employer. I was really happy that they were able to help me so quickly.
OLS Quebec lawyers were able to help me fight my past employer. I am glad they were able to prove I was terminated because of my disability and I am really happy I chose to contact a lawyer. It isn’t fair to me or others with disabilities. Hopefully they will think more about firing people because of disabilities. Although everything is settled now, it was devastating at first. It was hard to deal with then and hard on my finances. I was able to prove my point and OLS Quebec helped me, without them I wouldn’t have been able to prove they fired me for a disability.
