Will my ex-employer be responsible for paying my legal fees?

If your case goes to court and you are successful in your claim, the judge will typically order that your ex-employer pay you a portion of the cost of your legal fees. The exact amount you will be able to recover is determined according to a formula set out in the rules of court (which are established by government regulation). If we are able to resolve your case without going to court, you may also be able to recoup some of your legal costs as part of any monetary settlement reached with your ex-employer.
