Ramsay Lampman Rhodes has an experienced team of employment lawyers to help with a wide variety of workplace issues. Our lawyers advise both employers and employees on employment contracts, severance packages, wrongful dismissal, workplace investigations, and human rights complaints.
Managing employees? It is crucial that employers obtain legal advice when drafting employment contracts or when terminating an employee in order to avoid costly mistakes and potential litigation. A solid legal foundation means that business owners can concentrate on what they do best – running their business – instead of dealing with avoidable employment law disputes.
Wrongfully dismissed or terminated from your job? Laid off? Are you dealing discrimination in the workplace? Employees are often faced with challenging situations at work, and need good advice about what their legal rights are so that they can make sound decisions based on the right information. If your employment rights have been violated or you are unsure what your rights are, our employment lawyers can help. We understand that when we’re talking about your job, we’re also talking about your life, your house, and your future.
Concerned about how the COVID-19 pandemic affects your workplace and employees’ rights? Our lawyers are up-to-date with the latest legal developments and are here to guide you through this difficult time.
Ramsay Lampman Rhodes has employment lawyers in Nanaimo, Courtenay, and Port Alberni that are experienced with the legal challenges of today’s workplace, and will focus on advocating for your interests, whether you’re drafting a contract for an exciting new opportunity, or you’re involved with a lawsuit.
