With the aim to minimize time, costs and disruptions, we provide expert advice to prevent workplace disputes from becoming bigger problems. But when issues escalate, we fiercely represent our clients’ best interests before provincial tribunals and in the courts.

On day-to-day issues we provide ongoing support to management by drafting employment contracts, providing human resources advice, developing compliant workplace policies and procedures, advising on termination packages, collective agreement administration, and grievance arbitration. If required, we conduct workplace audits and workplace investigations.

In addition, our lawyers provide advice on a wide range of employment issues, including performance management, executive compensation, benefits, overtime and bonuses, as well as managing compliance issues, disability and accommodation, lay-offs, hiring and recruitment, and discipline and termination.
