British Columbia Employer Advisor Keeping Employers Posted on Developments in Labour and Employment Law


If human capital is the cornerstone of successful enterprises, fostering a supportive and inclusive work culture is critical. But the road to strong relationships with employees can have twists and turns. These can range from human rights and pay equity matters to harassment and occupational safety issues. With the wide breadth and complexity of applicable legislative, regulatory and common law rules, expert legal advice can help resolve labour and employment issues and grievances before they become problems.

McCarthy Tétrault’s Labour & Employment Group has extensive experience working with both private and public sector employers. We provide advice on union-management relationships, collective bargaining, employment standards, corporate restructuring, executive compensation, workplace management, privacy concerns, and novel work arrangements and technologies. We regularly appear before courts, labour relations boards, and human rights and administrative tribunals across Canada.

  • collective agreement negotiations
  • conflict of interest
