Employment Solutions

Managing its Human Resources is one of your company's greatest challenges. This is no surprise given the array of legal issues to be considered, ranging from drug and alcohol testing, human rights, #metoo movement, privacy rights, occupational health and safety, employment standards, drafting effective employment contracts, to protecting your business using enforceable non-competition and non-solicitation agreements.

Our employment lawyers have the skill, knowledge and experience to provide you with the tools your company needs to avoid problems before they arise and to strategically handle them after they occur.


A. The "HR Audit"

Many of our clients have grown rapidly from small and humble beginnings, and now find themselves running a sizable operation. As their business grows so does their need for resources such as employment contracts, policies, non-competition and confidentiality agreements.

To better position our clients to meet the growing challenges that come with success, our employment lawyers provide what we call, the "HR Audit". We review our clients' Human Resources documentation with a view to putting in place the necessary paper to create an efficient, safe and consistent employment environment, and to protect the business from illegal and unfair competition. We will determine what tools are right for your company and put them in place.

B. HR Lawyers on Demand

Employment law is complex and constantly evolving. Keeping up with HR compliance while managing your employees can be expensive and time consuming. That is why we have introduced the HR Lawyers on Demand subscription service. This subscription gives you fast and accurate employment law advice, customizable employment documents with a flat fee for easy budgeting and planning.

C. Succession Planning

Many of our employer clients were founded by baby boomers who are now set to retire and want to pass on the business to family members and key employees. Two keys to the successful turnover of a business is ensuring there is an appropriate structure in place for the transaction, and that key employees are signed to appropriate contracts providing sufficient incentive for them to perform while protecting the business from unfair competition.

Our employment lawyers, in tandem with our business and estate lawyers, working in conjunction with trusted accounting firms, will work to ensure that your business is ready for succession when the time comes.
