We act for employers and employees negotiating employment and consulting contracts and providing our clients with employment and termination advice and representation.
We represent our clients in negotiations, before the courts in employment claims and before the Human Rights Tribunal. We act for both employers and employees.
We can assist in drafting, reviewing and negotiation of employment arrangements from simple ‘hire and pay’ arrangements to the complex contracts involving precise scope of work, responsibility, restrictive covenants, compensation, bonus and equity plans and severance arrangements. It may be better suited to the parties to create a consulting contract rather than an employment relationship. We can assist in these arrangements as well.
If you are an employer facing a challenging employment problem, you should seek our advice in respect to your rights and obligations.
If you are seeking to make changes to your employment arrangements in the workplace, we can guide you through that process in a manner that reduces the risk and cost.
If you have been let go from your job, you should seek our advice in respect to the circumstances and any termination offer you have received from your employer. We can assist you in negotiating a better severance package. If you face discrimination or harassment in the workplace, consult with us regarding your best recourse.
Simon Valleau, Michael Freeman each have many years of experience in this field.
