Contract Worker Lawyers for Western Canada
Contract employees in Canada are those who are brought in for a short period of time to work on a specific project. This is done when a company requires niche expertise that they do not have internally, and instead of hiring someone full-time, they bring in someone who already has the skills required.
It is a common misconception that employees receive severance, whereas those who are characterized as contractors don’t.
Independent contractor agreements are becoming increasingly common, especially in an economy as dynamic as Alberta’s.
If your employment is terminated, you have legal rights that are protected under both federal and provincial law regarding notice and fair severance pay.
