Our experienced labour and employment law team offers a complete range of legal services in labour- and employment-related matters. Our team’s expertise and efficiency make it the preferred partner of top Canadian and Quebec union and non-union employers, particularly in the agri-food, manufacturing and mining sectors, as well as in the transport, service and pulp and paper sectors.

Our team regularly represents the interests of Quebec and Canadian businesses before the Canada Industrial Relations Board and Quebec Commission des relations du travail, Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail, Commission des lésions professionnelles, Tribunal d’arbitrage, Canadian Industrial Relations Board, Human Rights Tribunal, Commission de l’industrie de la construction, Régie des rentes du Québec and civil courts.

Our team also offers SMES as well as international businesses strategic advice on labour relations issues. In particular, our labour and employment lawyers regularly advise their clients in the drafting and implementation of restrictive employment clauses (non-competition, non-solicitation and confidentiality) related to business reorganizations, mergers, acquisitions or sales; individual or collective employment terminations; and dispute resolution by mediation, negotiation or during a hearing. Finally, the labour and employment law team ensures that its clients are kept on the cutting edge of legislative trends and amendments in human resource management and regularly offers training sessions and lectures focused on their particular needs in this area.
