Making a Positive Difference in People’s Lives
Employment lawyer, Jason Jagpal, Sr. Associate at Whitten and Lublin, practices employment law because he knows the positive difference it can make in people’s lives.
As a strong advocate of client rights, Jason ensures no client feels powerless. He enables clients to take control of their situation by providing them with the confidence to take action. His straightforward, collaborative and engaging approach with clients leads them to describe his experience, knowledge and professionalism as “invaluable”. His “exceptional focus”, “methodical approach” and results orientation means no detail is overlooked in pursuit of maximum results for his client.
With employment law constantly changing, Jason loves the challenge of thinking creatively and strategically to find or close loopholes during negotiations and litigation to protect his client’s best interest.
Jason ‘s litigation experience has had him appear in front of several courts and tribunals including the Superior Court, the Court of Appeal, Human Rights Tribunal, Workplace Safety and Insurance Tribunal, and the Financial Services Commission of Ontario Tribunal.
Jason is also one of a few employment lawyers who has experience as a personal injury lawyer, having helped people who were injured through negligence or neglect of others. This background has transferred well to workplace legal disputes, where one party can try to take advantage of the other.
Jason advises and represents both employees and employers on all aspects of the employment law, including wrongful dismissals, workplace investigations, human rights violations, workplace safety, harassment and violence concerns.
Jason Jagpal is a member of the South Asian Bar Association. He is also able to provide legal services in Punjabi.
