Legal Advice and Guidance

legal advice

A single consultation may prevent months of litigation, or secure higher entitlements.

We’ve seen it happen countless times where employers and employees make crucial employment decisions without legal guidance and they end up regretting it in the long run.

For example, employers who fail to comply with Canadian employment law needlessly put themselves at risk for litigation. Employees, on the other hand, unknowingly accept employment terms and conditions that fall short of their full entitlement.

Such costly consequences can often be prevented by seeking the strategic guidance of an employment lawyer early in the decision-making process.

We Prevent and Resolve Employment Issues

For over 30 years, Minken Employment Lawyers has acted as a trusted advisor and advocate for employers and employees, both locally and abroad. We have the knowledge, expertise and experience to advise clients on issues such as:

  • Workplace Policies—developing, drafting, and revising for compliance with the latest employment and workplace standards.
  • Employee Terminations—developing termination packages to maximize cost-effectiveness and reduce the possibility of future litigation.
  • Severance Package Reviews—reviewing to ensure the fullest entitlement possible under current legislation and common law.
  • Employment Contracts—developing, drafting and reviewing of crucial terms and clauses to reduce liability, ensure validity and enforceability, and increase entitlements.

Sometimes, even one hour spent in consultation with our lawyers can prevent months of litigation, or secure significantly higher amounts of entitlements. Experience has often shown that prevention is a much better route when facing employment issues.
