How Can Our BC Employment Lawyers Help You?
While we do help employers in some cases, most of our work is with employees who have suffered from abuse of their rights in the workplace.
Our Vancouver employment lawyers will help you understand your employee rights and explain your options if you have suffered at the hands of an employer.
We also regularly provide legal counsel for cases of workplace harassment and discrimination, as well as unpaid wages/overtime and other employment-related disputes.
Most of our clients benefit from our approach of tactful negotiation with the other party. Wherever that is not possible, decisive and resolute litigation is used as a last resort.
If your employment rights have been violated by an employer, colleague, or another party in a Vancouver workplace, start by letting us know the details in a confidential one-on-one lawyer consultation and document review.
We can provide a quick assessment of whether you have a case for compensation and damages.
