Edmonton, AB (PRUnderground) February 6th, 2021
Even the most hard-working and conscientious employee might need help from an employment lawyer at some point. Employment law can be confusing, and without proper guidance, you might end up missing all the benefits you rightfully deserve.
So, when exactly should an employee lawyer up? ThreeBestRated® reached out to Jarret Janis, founding partner of a ThreeBestRated® award-winning employment law firm in Edmonton, for an explanation.
“As I tell all of our clients, it is critical to see an employment lawyer at various stages of the employment relationship, including before you sign the contract or offer letter as there may be important limitations on your right to severance contained in the agreement,” Jarret says.
He advises employees not to wait till they resign or are terminated to seek advice. “We encourage employees to be proactive in seeking employment advice-even if only for a brief consult-before making any decision to resign from a position or to accept a severance proposal,” he says.
“The most important meeting you will have with a lawyer is the initial consultation. In almost every case, our clients walk out feeling more relaxed and confident about their situation and consider it a very worthwhile investment,” he further adds.
About Jarret Janis – Taylor Janis LLP:
Jarret has always been interested in and passionate about standing up for the “little guy.” He originally began his legal career as a criminal defence lawyer, fighting for the people’s rights.
“I then shifted that fight to standing up for employees who have had their livelihoods stripped away while their employers withhold severance pay that these employees are entitled to. In some cases, the employer has levelled serious allegations of the just cause against our clients, which places the employee in a situation of having to defend their legal rights and their reputations,” he explains.
“To me, this is serious work where I see myself as being able to a make difference in the lives of people, even if just to give some candid advice concerning their situation,” he further adds.
Jarret, together with his partner, Conan Taylor, founded Taylor Janis LLP in 2012.”My best achievement in the industry is, together with my partner, Conan Taylor, building a team of dedicated and passionate lawyers and support staff that continues to help everyday Albertans get through a termination with dignity and financial security,” he says proudly.
They are now one of the ThreeBestRated® award-winning employment lawyers in Edmonton. And Jarret and his team are excited to win the award for the second time in a row.
“Our firm is very honoured to be listed as one of the ThreeBestRated® employment lawyers in Calgary and Edmonton. We do consider our lawyers to be top-notch when it comes to this area of law, and ThreeBestRated® appears to be very well-researched and selective in their approach. We are thankful for that and look forward to maintaining our position in the years ahead,” he says.
Jarret is looking forward to more success this year. “As a committed boutique workplace firm, our team is excited for 2021. Albertans continue to feel the effects of the economic downturn and the turmoil created by COVID-19. We continue to attract some of the brightest lawyers in the area and continue to grow our firm in size geographical scope to better meet the needs of Albertans,” he says.
