Employers in Canada have many legal obligations with regard to their employees.

Even an innocent oversight can lead to civil liability, bad publicity, hearings before a human rights tribunal, or a work safety investigation. The best way to avoid these costs is to work with an experienced employment lawyer before hiring any employee. The employment law practice at MacKenzie Fujisawa helps employers meet legal obligations in:


  • Recruiting and hiring employees
  • Establishing employment policies
  • Ensuring workplace safety regulations are met
  • Employee discipline
  • Responding to employee complaints of legal violations
  • Workplace investigations
  • Downsizing and workforce reduction
  • Terminating employment for cause
  • Negotiating severance agreements
  • Defending civil suits for wrongful termination and other employment matters
  • Appearing before human rights commissions and tribunals
  • Appealing tribunal decisions in the court system


Employers can drastically reduce the chances of liability by working with a lawyer to establish good employment practices that comply with all applicable employment laws. Our employment practice also defends employers in civil litigation and appeals, tribunal inquiries, and regulatory investigations..
