I'm Lior Samfiru, Canadian employment lawyer and television and radio host. AMA!
Good morning r/iAMA, this is Lior Samfiru. I am a co-founding member of Samfiru Tumarkin LLP (https://www.stlawyers.ca/team/lior-samfiru) here in Toronto, and I head the firm's Labour and Employment Law practice group.
I host The Employment Law Show (http://www.employmentlawshow.com), a weekly television and radio show and have appeared on such media outlets as CTV, Global News, and the National Post. I am here today to answer your questions about how the COVID-19 pandemic will impact your employment rights. This is a difficult time, with layoffs in all types of professions going on across the country. I often deal with wrongful dismissals, layoffs, and constructive dismissals. I'm here to answer any questions you have on this, although I am open for any other questions related to employment rights! I will be here between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM and will try to answer as much as I can.
