Our team of employment lawyers have experience assisting a variety of businesses, so we understand that every workplace is unique, involving different types of people, business practices, and industry standards. We will work together with you to learn about your business goals and ensure that you reduce future liabilities and respond proactively to problems when they arise.

Some of the ways we can assist you include:

Employment Contracts:  we can assist by drafting employment contracts for new employees or update employment contracts for existing employees. Having written employment contracts in place can help reduce your company’s liability and create clear expectations for your employees.

Termination: we can guide your business through the legal process of terminating employee(s) to ensure that terminations or layoffs are conducted in accordance with the Employment Standards Act and the common law.

Employment Standards Act Requirements: the BC Employment Standards Act governs most workplaces in our province and sets out the minimum standards that must be met by employers. We are happy to arrange an appointment to meet with you to discuss any of your questions or concerns about your workplaces’ compliance with this Act.

BC Human Rights Tribunal Complaints: we can assist you by responding and advocating for your business at every stage in a human rights tribunal complaint until a resolution is reached.

Workplace Policy Manuals: our employment law team can assist your business by drafting a custom workplace policy manual to reflect your employment practices, and include the necessary policies mandated by WorkSafeBC.

Starting a New Business: if you are starting a new business, a member from our employment law team can collaborate with a member of our business law team to help you incorporate your business, provide an employment contract template as you hire your first employees, and provide legal information concerning your requirements as an employer under the Employment Standards Act.

If you are interested in meeting with us, please reach out to set up an initial consultation appointment.
