"I am a professional lady and for the the past 15 years I have been working with media, publishing, and events sector.
The industry I have been working for is one of the most competitive, unstable and merciless.
Employees have no values in the eyes of employers and management, most of the time we are treated as disposable goods rather than human beings.
Here is where my story starts: 6 months ago I was employed by a multinational company which specializes in global events. During my probation time I have been working hard to prove myself and establishing my position from temporary to permanent.
At the end of my last business trip I did manage to secure business expectations and targets in full. On my first day back to the office after my successful business trip I was expecting to get my permanent contract secured. Instead I was called in a last minute meeting organised by the HR division to be fired.
Here is where I had my fortunate encounter with Ted. I was desperate, I couldn't afford any legal fees, and all the lawyers I spoke to sounded greedy and unreliable, and they all fed me into false hopes and expectations. Luckily a friend recommended me to seek help and legal advice with the BCSA Union, sharing the details of the union founder, Ted Purcell who came highly recommended.
From the very first time that I spoke to Ted over the phone he told me the ugly truth, that I had few chances to win this case, almost none. I was impressed by his direct and honest approach.
So when negotiations got nasty with my former employers, Ted stepped in as my legal advice.
He conducted brilliantly all the negotiations, his astute and experienced approach led me to victory.
Finally justice its done !
Words cannot express my gratitude to this man, he helped me winning a case that I thought was lost since day one, and his council over the past few weeks it has been priceless.
His victory helped me financially, but most of all, I consider this a moral victory, which has boosted up my moral.
Thank you Ted, you restored my hope in the legal system.
