EMPLOYER AND EMPLOYEE
Goodfellow & Schuettlaw regularly acts on behalf of both employers and employees in employment negotiations and disputes.
Whether you are entering the job market for the first time or were recently terminated, it is important to understand your rights as an employee. Both National and Provincial governments have enacted a wide range of employment laws protecting employees from discriminatory treatment, unfair labour practices, unsafe work conditions, and more.
Relations between employees and employers extend beyond payroll and work product. It is important that both parties understand their respective obligations under the employment relationship.
Our lawyers can assist in establishing the terms of the relationship by drafting employment agreements and providing guidance in the drafting of employee handbooks.
When the relationship becomes more tumultuous, we can assist in evaluating whether an employee has been treated fairly or has been terminated appropriately and advise on what adequate notice or pay in lieu of notice should be in the particular circumstance.
