Labour And Employment

Our lawyers have represented both employers as well as executives and employees in various aspects of labour and employment-related disputes, including advancing and defending claims of termination, severance packages and wrongful dismissal claims.

We have also been involved in Anton Piller orders and other forms of extraordinary remedies and have obtained and defended against various forms of injunctive relief for our clients, including at the provisional stage, in cases of breach of non-competition, non-solicitation, confidentiality and other restrictive covenants, and unfair competition.

Our practice includes preparing and reviewing employment contracts, including for U.S. companies doing business in Québec and elsewhere in Canada. We also regularly counsel our clients on termination-related issues with a view to ensuring compliance with the applicable legislation and protecting their rights to the greatest extent possible.
