HR Law

We know how hard it is to navigate the complex and ever-changing world of HR law. We keep on top of the law so you don’t have to.

Human rights & accommodation

Balancing human rights in the workplace is about the law, your operational needs, and the diverse and sometimes competing needs of your employees. We get that. And we help you balance that to achieve the optimal result.

Employment law advice & strategy

As the saying goes, “a good offence is the best defence”. We work with you to minimize the risk of legal liability through proactive measures and due diligence strategies. That way you can focus on the needs of your organization without the distraction of legal disputes.

  • reviewing and drafting user-friendly employment policies
