Employment Law – Introduction

Employment law involves the employment relationship between companies and non-union employees.  Most non-union employment contracts are unwritten, but they are contracts, nevertheless.  Although the law which governs employee contracts is found in statutes such as the Employment Standards Act, their interpretation and enforcement is left largely to the courts.

Our lawyers represent employees and employers in wrongful dismissal actions, application of provincial and federal workplace statutes, advice on the main obligations or terms of non-union employment relationships, drafting advice on written contracts of non-solicitation and non-competition clauses and golden parachute compensation plans and arbitration clauses.
