The biggest problem facing employers is that there is no one law or single, readily accessible guidebook that explains all of your obligations as an employer. The vast majority of employers’ legal problems with their employees arise from the fact that the employer makes the wrong decision as a result of not knowing the rules or, even worse, consulting one source of the rules (for example, the Employment Standards Act) and assuming that following the Act will not create liability. The Employment Standards Act is just one piece of a complex puzzle of rules and laws that apply to employers.
The truth is that once you hire an employee, you acquire a host of responsibilities and obligations. We are the resource you need to understand those obligations and to help you take steps to reduce your potential liabilities. In our opinion, every employer needs access to a knowledgeable employment lawyer.
We can help you in many ways:
Our best employment clients are “well-trained”. Over the course of their relationship with us, we have taught them to identify the situations for which they need to call to get our advice. They call before the problem gets out of control and we guide them through the process. The result is that these clients spend much less on legal fees than they would if they had waited for the problem to hit the proverbial fan.
Our job is to help you steer clear of the problems that you can avoid and to respond to the ones you can’t.
We help employees in three main areas:
Our role is to educate you about your rights as an employee and to advise you of your options so that you can make an informed decision as to what course of action you will take. We will help you carry out that course of action. In some cases, your legal fees will be a tax-deductible expense.
