Why See an Experienced Employment Lawyer?

The complexity of legal, practical and emotional issues surrounding workplace relationships requires proper legal guidance for both employer and employee.  Although we encourage the use of online resources we caution you in using calculators and online legal tools as more than a few factors must be considered in every situation that play a role in determining the outcome of your case.  Our employment lawyers stay on the leading edge of employment law issues, such as wrongful dismissal, constructive dismissal, human rights and employment contracts, through ongoing professional development, allowing them to apply their expertise in advising our clients on their legal rights and entitlements.  Daily practical application of this knowledge is what allows our employment lawyers to provide most comprehensive legal advice and guidance.
