What is employment law?
Employment laws are in place to govern the often-complex relationship between a worker and a business and to define the rights and responsibilities of both parties.
Generally speaking, employees have more rights under common law than under provincial legislation. This can create legal disputes, especially with matters such as wrongful dismissal and severance pay.
Because of the significant financial consequences that can result from employment matters, it is important to understand these laws from both sides of the employment relationship and to take the appropriate legal advice if there are disputes.
What do employment lawyers do?
Provincial employment laws cover the vast majority of employees in both Alberta & British Columbia for matters such as the minimum standard of hours, sick pay and severance in the case of termination.
As mentioned, under the common law, employees may be entitled to more than the minimums stated in the employment acts. Employment lawyers must be intimately familiar with both common law and employment law and advise parties accordingly of their rights and responsibilities.
Employment lawyers can represent either the employee or the employer in legal aspects of labour and employment rights, covering everything from wrongful dismissal and termination without cause to non-solicitation agreements.
