Executives, employees and contractors are critical to the success of most businesses; yet they can also be extremely problematic when the challenge ownership. As such, it is very important to have solid legal agreements in place and be conducting periodic workplace reviews and training, in an effort to minimize your employment-related legal liability. By taking a proactive approach, you have the potential to substantively reduce, and even prevent, adverse employee claims and lawsuits.

Unfortunately, being unaware or uncertain of one's employment obligations is not an acceptable rebuttal to a violation of employment and human rights laws. An employer is expected to know, and when the employer does not know the answer or the appropriate course of action, the employer is expected to consult knowledgeable legal counsel, so as to attain the appropriate course of action based upon the facts presented. By tackling employment-related scenarios with such an approach, employers will be far better positioned to navigate the turbulent waters of hiring, firing, disciplining, advancing and compensating employees, executives and independent contractors, than they could hope to realize on their own.

For more information on how we can strengthen your legal position relative to your employees, executives and contractors (from negotiating and drafting employment agreements and compensation packages to preparing workplace manuals and training sessions to conducting investigations and reviews to terminating employees), contact us at or 403-400-4092.
