Employment Law

Workplaces are the center of people’s livelihoods and how they care for their families and loved ones.

Are your policies updated and responsive to how the world is changing? Does everyone know their rights and obligations? We can help.

When your business is growing, we can help shape where it goes. We have helped companies with impressive trajectories scale their HR policies. We have helped companies going through periods of contraction to do the same. Your company’s growth should never be impeded by not having a holistic growth strategy highlighting the values that helped you find success in the first place. In times good or bad, it’s important to showcase your policies the right way— and with the right words.

For individuals, knowing your rights and what you’re entitled to can be confusing—even intimidating. That shouldn’t be the case. Your experience is valid. Your rights matter. We can keep you informed. And if you need a resolution on your rights not being respected, we will be there to assist you.

While workplaces change and new workplace issues arise, we are always at the forefront of understanding your rights and obligations with human rights issues, disabled employees, or guidance during occupational health and safety investigations.

We have assisted our clients in the following areas:

  • Preparing employment agreements and contracts
  • Preparing employee profit-sharing plans
  • Advising on employee termination issues and best practices
  • Advising about employee share ownership and share options
  • Assessing and considering employment policies, and, where appropriate, drafting policies and guidelines
  • Advising on rights and obligations arising under the Employment Standards Code and the Alberta Human Rights Act and the Canadian Human Rights Act
  • Addressing Workers’ Compensation Board matters
  • Assisting in the resolution of wrongful dismissal complaints
  • Attending at arbitration proceedings, appearing before all levels of the courts and participating in applications for judicial review
  • Representing clients in proceedings before the Privacy Commissioner and the Alberta and Canadian Human Rights Commissions
  • Representing employers in prosecutions under occupational health and safety legislation
