Employment Law

We advise employers and employees on all employment-related legal matters, including recruitment and hiring, human resources policies, workplace culture and incentives, workplace harassment and discrimination, employee contracts, disability and human rights, employment disputes, severance packages, wrongful dismissal litigation, and Employment Standards claims.


Our clients come from a wide variety of industries and backgrounds. We focus on empowering people and organizations by preserving and protecting their legal rights. We help our clients achieve just and equitable outcomes.


We help employers and employees to initiate, nurture and maintain sustainable employment relationships based on the four Cs framework:

  • Character – people who will do the right thing

  • Chemistry – people who get along with each other

  • Culture – people who joyfully support the organization's mission

  • Competencies – people who are skillful

A sustainable employment relationship is a mutual arrangement between an employer and an employee. It rests on a shared vision, shared commitment to the organization's mission, and shared values. It produces a workplace that is focused on service.
