I am an Employer

Owners of small to medium sized businesses  often lack  necessary resources to make crucial decisions.  Human capital or talent is a critical asset to any business and we can be a resource to help entrepreneurs manage their employment relationships effectively.  With an ability to understand human interaction and behavior we can get to the heart of the matter and present effective options and strategies to manage your human resource concerns. 

We can help you handle your human resources obligations effectively and efficiently and protect you against litigation while leaving you free to concentrate on your business.

We offer legal services that include advice, courtroom and tribunal advocacy, negotiation, workplace investigation, mediation, policy development, strategic planning for hiring and retention of employees and protection of intellectual property, contracts of employment and consulting agreements, disciplinary procedures, and advice on dismissals and severance agreements. 

In determining how we can effectively advise you on your employment needs we have created the following checklist for you to consider:

Must Have’s

  1. Employment contracts for all employees customized to their role in your company.
  2. Workplace Policies incorporating reporting and investigation procedures for complaints of human rights violations, bullying, harassment and violence.
  3. Advice on terminations and severance packages.

Good Investments

  2. Non solicitation and Non competition Agreements for senior management and executives.
  3. Workplace Policies covering areas that have been a problem to date (use of internet or email ).
