Well-crafted employment policies are the first step on the road to successful employment and labour relations for employers. We provide advice on all aspects of the employment relationship from hiring to termination and everything
in between, including assisting with properly drafted policies and agreements to establish a strong working relationship between an employer and employee.
At McLennan Ross, we provide clear and concise advice to help employers build a solid foundation of policies and agreements that protect their interests, while maintaining positive labour relations and attracting top talent. We seek not just to give answers
in a legal context, but to provide practical solutions. Given the challenges posed by an ever-evolving modern workforce, solid and up-to-date agreements and policies are more important than ever.
Get it right the first time.
Issues with current and former employees cost employers time and money. Lengthy disputes and litigation can be avoided with solid, clearly written employment agreements and policies. An employment agreement must address a number of issues, from initial
hiring all the way through to the termination or separation from employment to mitigate the risk of future conflict.
With our combination of legal skill and business experience, we provide efficient solutions for agreements and workplace policies. Our experienced lawyers assist employers in drafting, negotiating, and interpreting employment agreements. We can help at
any stage, but as with most employment issues, it always pays to get it right the first time. Whether you need help at the start or with existing employment contracts, we can advise on amendments to bring policies up-to-date with current legislation
or emerging developments in any industry.
Your organization is unique.
To protect profitability and the ongoing well-being of a workplace, we strive to know and understand every client and the unique details of their organization. Employment agreements are never one-size-fits-all. Whether an organization has 10 or 1,000
employees, protecting our clients’ interests is our top priority.
Every new or existing employment relationship is a contract, whether written or verbal. No matter the type of work, be it contract, part-time, full-time, or casual, proper agreements and policies need to be in place.
With one of the largest Labour and Employment groups in Western Canada, we provide employer-focused employment advice and draft employment agreements and policies for a wide range of employers in the private and public sectors in a broad spectrum of industries, including construction, airlines, mining, energy, manufacturing, transportation, retail, telecommunications, infrastructure, post-secondary education, school boards, health care, and municipalities.
