Employment Litigation

With one of Manitoba’s leading labour and employment practices, our lawyers are well versed in handling employment litigation claims (including wrongful dismissals and cases involving restrictive covenants) at all levels of court in Manitoba and other jurisdictions.

While we predominantly represent employers in these matters, we do represent individual plaintiffs in a number of circumstances. We represent a wide variety of organizations including unionized and non-unionized, public and private sector, and for-profit and not-for-profit. Our clients range in size from small businesses to multi-national companies but are all susceptible to legal issues around employee dismissal. We have advised countless clients on best practices to avoid costly and unnecessary legal battles, and employ a proactive approach whenever possible to avoid unexpected litigation and reputational damage.
