Employees are arguably the most important assets of any business. When a business hires its first employee, they need to ensure they are in compliance with Canadian employment laws, regulations and associated guidelines. Complying with employment law and labour standards can be challenging for businesses as there are many nuances in employment law matters. Whether you have a small, medium or large business, obtaining legal advice is crucial to minimize risk and costs of the business to maintain their competitive advantage in the industry.
Legal Representation & Support for Employers
In today’s strict compliance world, the responsibilities and obligations of Canadian employers are rising. Starting with human rights issues, workplace violence, confidentiality, harassment issues or labour relations, there are many areas where employers need to abide by and follow the law.
While focussing on the core business and its risk and liability issues, the employer also needs to manage the workplace expertly. At this time, companies need specialized legal counsel which they trust and can follow to maintain their legal obligations. Knowledgeable employment lawyers with up to date information should be present to assist you when you manage your employees. At Nanda & Associate Lawyers, you will find capable and specialized employment lawyers to impart legal counsel in all spheres of labor and employee relations.
In Canada, the employee and employer relationship can be complex. Complying with employment law and labour standards is imperative if any business wants to survive and grow. It is also vital to avoid any significant penalties for non-compliance.
Legal advice may be required on many issues such as compensation and contractual matters, human rights complaints, terminations and dismissals, immigration, pay equity, occupational health and safety, and workplace safety.
In the course of standard business transactions, a business may require information and legal guidance on many employment issues such as recruitment, employee relations, outsourcing agreements, collective agreements and compliance with Canadian laws on privacy.
