Good employee-employer relationships are the bedrock of a successful business. You need the legal experts to help build a solid employment framework from the start with clearly written, comprehensive employee contracts. This framework can help prevent many issues before they occur by putting proper procedures and mechanisms in place. However, when employers and employees reach an impasse, we work with all parties to find a satisfactory resolution.

Our skilled Employment Law Practice Group has extensive experience in labour relations, human rights and occupational health and safety. We have worked with all workplace groups from independent contractors to general staff, management and senior executives. Our lawyers can help in all areas of contract creation, interpretation, dispute and resolution including: creating job descriptions, drafting contracts, resolving disputes, and preparation of non-competition clauses. We represent both employers and employees for all repercussions of termination of the employment relationship.

Ensuring these issues are carefully considered and decisions are well-supported by expert legal advice can help to alleviate what is often the most stressful relationship in today’s business environment. We are committed to effectively handling all your employment legal matters.
