We help employers manage people; and help employees with employment problems.
The members of our Employment and Labour Law Team act in all aspects of labour relations and employment law on behalf of both employers and employees. From our Halifax – Dartmouth offices, our lawyers represent institutional clients, private business and individuals in drafting employment contracts, collective bargaining negotiations, at arbitrations and before labour relations boards. We also advise on employee terminations and wrongful dismissal claims.
Members of the Team appear before tribunals concerned with employment relationships, human rights and occupational health and safety, and before the courts. Our Labour, Workplace and Employment Law lawyers regularly work with our corporate clients to write employment policies and practices and to deal with the administration of collective agreements.
