Employment Law Services

Our experiences at work influence almost every other aspect of our lives. As former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, Justice Dickson, opined:

Work is one of the most fundamental aspects in a person's life, providing the individual with a means of financial support and, as importantly, a contributory role in society. A person's employment is an essential component of his or her sense of identity, self-worth and emotional well-being.

Reference Re Public Service Employee Relations Act (Alta.), [1987] 1 S.C.R. 313, at p. 368.

Difficulties or unfair treatment at work can be traumatic for an employee and their loved ones. At Candid Legal, we understand that our clients come to us during some of the most stressful periods of their lives: they have lost their jobs, been disciplined at work, or been demoted or mistreated and want to know their legal rights.

Often, a consultation is all that is required. When it is not, we can also help with contract or severance negotiations, administrative agency claims, and court actions.

Specifically, we provide our clients with strategic advice and representation relating to:

  • negotiating compensation and employment contracts;
  • non-compete and confidentiality agreements;
  • wrongful dismissal and severance agreements;
  • unpaid wages and overtime matters;
  • family and medical leave disputes; and
  • human rights claims.
