WRONGFUL DISMISSAL

Under Alberta Law, an employee who has not been provided proper notice of termination has been wrongfully dismissed. Bad faith termination can also expose employers to additional aggravated or punitive damages.

SEVERANCE PACKAGE REVIEWS

Severance package calculations depend on a number of factors specific to the employee, including: age, tenure, specialized skillset(s), state of the economy and managerial/supervisorial duties.

INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS

Contractors can be owed severance pay too under the legal doctrine of 'Dependent Contractorship'. This is often the case regardless of how you are described in your contract, whether or not you own your own business or if you pay your own income taxes.

EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS

Employment agreements can be lengthy, complex, and consequential to your long term well being. We are trained to look for red flags in written contracts and can help you understand your rights and obligations before signing a new agreement.

Employment Agreements
Non-Competition Agreements

NON-COMPETITION/
NON-SOLICITATION

Restrictive covenants in the form of non-competition or non-solicitation clauses can seriously limit your employment prospects. The good news is that many of these clauses are not enforceable. Contact an employment specialist to find out why.

CONSTRUCTIVE DISMISSAL

Constructive Dismissal

Is your employer trying to illegally force you out of your job through pay cuts, demotions, or the creation of an intolerable work environment? Constructive Dismissal aka 'Dismissal by Disguise'.

CEOs/DIRECTORS/MANAGEMENT

6CONTRACTORS.webp

CEOs, directors and upper management often face unique challenges upon termination due to lengthy employment contracts, complicated compensation schemes or lingering professional/fiduciary responsibilities.

TERMINATION FOR CAUSE

Termination for Cause

Termination for cause is rarely upheld and your employer must meet a high standard of proof. If you were not provided with at least three warnings prior to being dismissed, there is a good chance your employer owes you severance pay.

WORKPLACE HARASSMENT

Workplace Harassment

Every employee has an implied right to be treated with respect in the workplace. If you feel you are trapped in a toxic work atmosphere, you have options and we are here to help.
