Frequently asked questions

The short answer is yes, but we nonetheless have policies and structure in place to ensure a healthy balance between working in the office and working from home.

Obviously, during the pandemic, KPA transitioned most of our employees to working from home on a full-time basis. Perhaps we shouldn’t say “obviously” because some law firms did not provide this safety protection to their employees.

Even before the pandemic, KPA has had a flexible work-from-home policy in place for lawyers and paralegals. That’s because we know that practicing law doesn’t necessarily mean sitting in an office building from 9am to 5pm. Practicing law is stressful enough as it is, and we find that our licensees are happier and more productive when they can assert greater control over how, when and where they work.

All of our lawyers are full-time permanent employees of KPA Lawyers Professional Corporation.
We know that some law firms try to categorize their lawyers as “independent contractors” for reasons that we assume are motivated by profit, or the avoidance of liability. We don’t do business that way.

At KPA, we gladly embrace the responsibilities that employers owe to their employees. We also clearly articulate the terms of your employment arrangement in your written employment contract.

KPA receives hundreds of applications every month. We read every application, but only candidates selected from an interview will be contacted. We keep applications on file, and we will look at our pre-existing pool of candidates when a new opportunity arises. So we encourage all qualified candidates to apply.

You might be surprised to learn that, except for lawyers and paralegals, we often don’t require a college or university degree. Post-secondary education is required for lawyers and paralegals pursuant to the Law Society of Ontario.

However, KPA recognizes that, most of the time, universities and colleges do not provide students with the skills necessary to perform work in the “real world”. For most people, it does not even make financial sense to accumulate large amounts of student debt where the same (or superior) practical skills could be acquired for free on Youtube.

The best candidates who excel in their roles and perform better than post-secondary educated candidates are often people who never went to college or university. That’s why we look for practical skills, regardless of whether you learned those skills in a classroom or not.

And we’re not the only company that feels this way:

Sometimes, getting hired is all about timing. You might think that catching us in the middle of a hiring blitz can increase your chances, but we strongly recommend that all interested candidates apply at their own convenience.

KPA is in a constant state of growth, and we’re always looking to grow the size of our workforce.

Whenever we arrive at our next phase of growth, we look at a pre-existing pool of candidates before advertising the position online.

So it’s always better to apply.
