Labour and Employment Law
Jones Emery’s lawyers regularly advise and represent employers, strata corporations, landlords, business owners, employees and other individuals with legal matters and can also advise on proper hiring practices and workplace policies.
We assist people who feel they have been discriminated against based on race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation or age. Our lawyers have experience assisting with situations involving workplace accusations of harassment and discrimination.
We also provide assistance in implementing proactive measures to assist employers, strata corporations, and landlords in preventing or troubleshooting sensitive situations dealing with sexual harassment, medical disability and gender equality.
Some examples of the services we provide to employers and employees are:
- Drafting and reviewing employment contracts;
- Negotiating or mediating solutions to employment issues;
- Investigating and litigating Human Rights matters; and
- Reviewing termination of employment and wrongful dismissal claims.
