Employment Contract Lawyers for Western Canadians

As a business owner or manager, you hire employees on a regular basis. Many employers in Alberta fail to realize the importance of having well-drafted and legally enforceable written employment contracts in place.

Contracts are designed to define the employee-employer relationship and protect your interests should there be any dispute or the need to terminate a particular employee.

Terminating an employee can be one of the most time-consuming and expensive endeavors for an employer, particularly a small or medium business that has not budgeted for it.

What is the importance of a properly-drafted employment contract?

When there is no written employment contract or it is poorly written or executed, there will often be a dispute that must be resolved in court. Courts generally utilize the common law system to resolve cases.

Judges rely primarily on prior case law which can be unpredictable, and therefore risky for employers.

For this reason, it is best to implement an employment contract that clearly states the expectations, rights, and responsibilities of all parties.
