Advising municipalities concerning their employment and labour relations is a specialized area of practice. Our firm has deep experience in this area, having represented municipalities of various sizes across the province for many years.
Our lawyers are able to provide advice in all areas of employment and labour relations, and also apply the extensive knowledge gained from our work with municipalities to assist municipal clients to maintain smooth operations. We understand the requirement for municipal employees to work collaboratively with their elected officials and we work to solidify that collaborative process.
Our services include advising on labour relations strategies and day-to-day operations, collective agreement interpretation, dispute resolution, drafting of employment agreements and policy manuals and advising on employment terminations. We also appear before elected councils, as necessary, and provide representation before courts and administrative tribunals.
