Helping you through workplace issues
Many people spend a significant portion of their lives at work. So it makes sense that when you have a problem in the workplace, it can tear you apart. This is especially true if the problem includes mental or physical abuse including discrimination, bullying or sexual harassment.
Employment Law can include wrongful termination, constructive dismissal, sexual harassment, human rights and discrimination in the workplace, bullying and other types of harassment, union disputes and much more.
We assist clients obtaining severance pay as a result of terminations from employment without cause. Even where cause is alleged, we work hard to obtain a settlement.
We have assisted a client accused of financial misappropriation. We discovered the relevant historical documents to prove that our client was innocent. This client was suffering financially as a result of the termination, but also emotionally due to the defamatory allegations of fraud.
We had another client accused of stealing money from the employer, which we also disproved. We were able to receive a settlement to compensate for the false accusations.
We have assisted clients in human rights tribunal cases where they have been treated poorly by their employer as a result of pregnancy, maternity leave, race, family status, gender and disability.

It is illegal for employers to discriminate against employees on the basis of protected aspects including gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy, race, nationality, age, disability or religious beliefs. You may have a claim for illegal discrimination if you were passed over, let go, demoted, bypassed for a promotion, denied an increase or other benefit, were subjected to unwarranted discipline, or otherwise suffered less favorable treatment in the workplace because of discrimination. Protected areas include:
- Sexual orientation
- Religious belief
Wrongful termination refers to being let go from a job for an illegal reason such as discrimination or engaging in activity that is protected by law. Examples of such “protected activity” includes complaining about illegal discrimination, reporting sexual harassment, reporting or refusing to take part in illegal activity, and maternal or paternal leave. As your metro Vancouver employment lawyer, Dhahan Law can represent you in wrongful termination cases.
Another form of wrongful termination is known as Constructive Dismissal. This occurs when your employer, without your consent, makes a unilateral change to a fundamental term of the employment relationship, effectively terminating your job.
If you feel you’ve been wrongfully shown the door, please talk to us to see if you might have a valid claim.
Has a co-worker made unwelcome sexual advances toward you? Are emails from superiors making you uncomfortable because they contain sexual innuendos? If you believe you are being sexually harassed at work, you need to act now. Sexual harassment can severely impact your ability to work and thrive in the workplace. At Dhahan Law, we represent men and women who have been sexually harassed or have been wrongfully accused of sexual harassment.
Sexual harassment includes, among other things, comments of a sexual nature, sexual innuendoes, lewd or sexist remarks, sexual jokes, questions or comments about intimate relationships, inappropriate comments about physical appearance, and viewing, and showing or discussing pornography. Reporting requirements can vary depending on whether the harasser is a manager with authority to hire and fire or is just a co-worker.
