Home / Services / Employment Law

We offer individually tailored legal solutions to continually surpass client expectations in all labour and employment law matters.

We can review and advise on existing employment or consulting agreements or assist with the drafting of new or amended contracts. We assist employers in drafting human rights, harassment and privacy policies.

We regularly advise employers on implementing structural changes to their companies, investigating conduct complaints, terminating employees, calculating proper severance and protecting confidential and proprietary information.

We also represent employees, advising them of their rights in a variety of situations, including constructive dismissal, wrongful dismissal and workplace harassment. We can also review termination packages and advise on particulars, including severance pay, treatment of employee stock options, pension and other benefits, restrictions on future competition and proper mitigation obligations.

We offer a wealth of experience in all aspects of employer-employee relationships.

Our lawyers have represented both provincially and federally-regulated employers, and have represented clients at all levels of court in Alberta, the Federal Court of Canada, the Supreme Court of Canada, and various tribunals. Our team also has expertise in providing advice on tax consequences of decisions for both employers and employees.
