LawFact of the Day: Family law

Here is your daily LawFact from Wise Law for Wednesday June 20, 2018.

Today we are talking about Family Law.
In difficult custody cases, a Court may request that the Office of the Children’s Lawyer (OCL) become involved to investigate and make recommendations to the Court or to provide legal representation for a child.

The OCL is an Ontario government agency that employs lawyers and social workers. It works to provide independent information to the Court about a child’s needs, wishes and legal interests.

LawFact of the Day: Employment Law

Here is your daily LawFact from Wise Law for Tuesday June 19, 2018.

Today we are talking about Employment Law.
In addition to the minimum notice and severance required by the Employment Standards Act, Ontario employees are entitled to reasonable notice of termination, or pay in lieu of thereof upon termination of employment.

Unless an employment contract limits an employee’s entitlements, reasonable notice will be based on duration of employment, type of position, age and many other factors.

For an Ontario will to be valid, it must be signed by the person making the will and be witnessed by two people who are not beneficiaries under the will.

A holograph will is an exception to these formal requirements. Holograph wills must be made entirely in the handwriting of the testator. No witnesses are required for a holograph will.

LawFact of the Day: Family Law

Here is your daily LawFact from Wise Law for Wednesday June 13, 2018.

Today we are talking about Family Law.
Many custody disputes in Ontario family law matters are now resolved through mediation, rather than court action. 

Mediators work with parents to create parenting plans and residency schedules that are tailor-made to provide for children’s needs and for joint parenting. Both parties must  obtain independent legal advice to finalize any agreement.

Today we are talking about Employment Law.
Do employees have different severance entitlements under the Employment Standards Act and in wrongful dismissal cases that are decided in Court?
