About the show

The Employment Law Show is Canada’s ONLY program on television and radio dedicated to workplace rights for employees in Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta.

Join host and leading Canadian employment lawyer Lior Samfiru as he provides thorough answers to your questions about employment rights, and tackles the most important facets of employment law that are far too often overlooked by both employees and employers.

From grossly inadequate severance pay, to harassment in the workplace, to employees being routinely mislabeled as independent contractors, the program debunks the myths that have caused employees to miss out on their full workplace rights and entitlements. It also played a vital role in understanding employment rights during the COVID-19 pandemic by answering thousands of questions, including those submitted through live call-ins, about severance, temporary layoffs, safe workplaces, government benefits, self-isolation and more.

To contact Lior’s employment law team, call 1-855-821-5900, email Help@EmploymentLawyer.ca, or contact us online.
