These firms are helping employers and employees navigate a brave new world of employment law
It’s been one of the most challenging and interesting times for labour and employment law firms in Canada. The pandemic has fundamentally altered the world of work — remote and hybrid workplaces, vaccine mandates, mask policies, and the “right to disconnect” are just a few examples.
The clients of these firms depend on them to provide clear and consistent answers and strategies for dealing with these questions. They’ve also had to communicate to their employer clients on the best way to proceed in settling issues with clients in a world where the war to recruit and retain talent means employees often have more options than they’ve ever had. For those who represent employees, giving them the straight goods on their rights and responsibilities.
The good new is that this year’s winners shone when it comes to taking clients through the changes caused by the pandemic, many of which are likely here to stay. This year, we have decided name winners across three categories: Top 10 Labour and Employment Firms – East, Top 5 Labour and Employment Firms – West, and Top 5 Labour and Employment Firms – Union side.
