Employment Law

Employment Law

Employers often think that it is enough to follow provincial employment standards.  While that is a good starting point, the employment standards legislation only sets out the bare minimum of what the law requires.  We know what the law requires and can help you apply it to your needs.

Employment law is more than legislation; it is about people.  It is about creating and maintaining relationships, protecting your interests, growing your business and treating people with dignity. That is why we take it seriously and listen carefully.

Here is a sampling of some of the services we provide:

  • Employment Contracts
  • Independent Contractor Agreements
  • Workplace accommodation
  • Termination of Employment
  • Wrongful Dismissal
  • Negotiating Severance
  • Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation Agreements
  • Human Rights and Discrimination
  • Bullying and Harassment in the Workplace
  • Workplace Policies and HR Manuals

We have experience dealing with matters that involve the Human Rights Tribunal, the Employment Standards Tribunal, the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Tribunal, and professional governing bodies.

Talk to us. The correct and sympathetic handling of an employment law matter could be the difference between a handshake and a lawsuit.
