Ottawa Employment Lawyers

Employment matters can be complex and may be coupled with extenuating stressful financial circumstances for both employers and employees, including unemployment or a fiscal downturn. When an employer fails to comply with statutory and common law requirements with respect to contracts, terminations or layoffs, it can harm employees and leave employers vulnerable to significant damages awards. No matter which side of an employment dispute you’re on, it is vital to secure the right lawyer to ensure your interests are protected.

At Tierney Stauffer LLP, our employment lawyers have extensive experience representing both employers and employees. We bring a sense of compassion and enthusiasm to every case and are committed to helping our clients through their employment issues as effectively and efficiently as possible. Our depth of expertise in civil litigation, along with our superb reputation for customer service and professional excellence, ensures that we obtain the best results for our clients.

Employment Lawyers Representing Employee Rights

We assist employees with a range of employment-related issues, from reviewing new employment contracts to obtaining compensation in the event of wrongful dismissal. We understand that any action taken by an employer against an employee can be both difficult and emotional and can have serious consequences for the employee. We, therefore, strive to keep our clients well-informed of their rights and assist them in obtaining solutions to their disputes with their employers as quickly as possible.

Employment Lawyers Advising Employers

We help employers manage their exposure to liability by assisting them with a variety of human resources issues, such as employment contracts, disciplinary actions or terminations. We can also assist employers in defending claims brought against them by employees after disciplinary actions or terminations have taken place. It is our goal to work hard for our clients to resolve such matters as equitably and efficiently as possible. We work closely with many local businesses and act as advisors on a variety of employment matters, ensuring they maintain compliance with provincial and federal laws.
