Workplace Rights Threatened by Uber Lawsuit Decision
A judge's decision in the class-action lawsuit against Uber has dangerous implications for all Ontario workers. Lior Samfiru explains why the decision renders our employment laws meaningless.
When I was let go from my former position, I was at a loss. A call to Lior and his staff was a move in the right direction. Lior and his support staff were knowledgeable and very understanding of my plight. While I hope to never use his services again I know that there are alternatives to just taking what is offered and moving on. While it is a difficult experience I know that there is a sympathetic and professional ear to listen and give guidance.
Thank you to Samfiru Tumarkin, keep working for the (sometimes) underdog.
