Employment Law

Employment law is an active area of our practice.  We provide advice for federal, provincial and unionized employers.  We strongly recommend that prior to terminating an employee you seek legal advice in order to reduce the risk of a wrongful termination claim.

  • training senior staff and Council on policies
  • drafting policies prohibiting discrimination, harassment and bullying and assisting with implementation
  • managing human rights complaints
  • managing claims for wrongful dismissal
