Have you ever wondered if you lose your job, how much compensation is fair?

Or do you have questions about whether members of your team should be considered a contractor or an employee?

To help Canadians with these questions, particularly during COVID-19, the Conflict Analytics Lab at Queen’s University launched MyOpenCourt – a free, online platform that can help Canadians answer some basic employment law questions.

Should a user have a case and require legal help, they can be referred through MyOpenCourt to professional legal help for a pro bono consultation.

I am pleased to be one of the Canadian legal teams offering pro bono assistance to out-of-work Canadians through this platform, particularly as a Queen’s University alum and past lecturer.

If you know someone who is out of work and wondering about their rights, please send them to
