I was wrongfully dismissed, at the settlement stage, am I entitled to Human Rights portion, the lawyer fees are paid by the employer, does my lawyer also get the human rights portion?

Thanks for writing to us. It is difficult to determine whether you are entitled to human rights damages without any information about your matter. With respect to what your lawyer is entitled to receive, a lawyer may be entitled to receive a portion of the damages that you recover (including human rights damages), but it would depend entirely on what you have agreed upon as a fee structure with your lawyer. Again, it is difficult to determine without any information about your agreement and matter. I recommend that you give us a call at the number below in order to discuss your situation in further detail and receive comprehensive legal advice.
