Employment Law

Our overall approach towards employment law emphasizes planning and prevention. We work with our clients to help them avoid an employment crisis before it arises. For example, we regularly provide educational seminars to our clients on how to deal with a wide variety of human resources issues.

Our lawyers have successfully litigated a wide variety of employment issues in all levels of the courts of Alberta as well as the Supreme Court of Canada. We have also been successful before various tribunals and administrative bodies.

Our employment lawyers actively participate in associations related to human resources including the Human Resources Management Association of Edmonton and the Alberta Arbitration and Mediation Society.
