Employment, Labour, & Human Rights

Our Approach

The Mann Lawyers Employment, Labour and Human Rights service group has extensive experience working with employers, employees and unions in a diversity of work environments.  This experience facilitates our ability to provide advice and recommend solutions that support the business objectives of our corporate clients, and the personal objectives of the individual employees who retain us.

We appreciate that employment relationships are some of the most long-lasting and important relationships people have.  We know that our clients need practical and considerate advice for their particular situations.

Whether you are an individual, a business, a non-profit organization, or a union, we will work with you to develop practical, cost-effective solutions that are tailored to your specific situations, explaining the steps in the legal process along the way.

Advising employers

We take pride in developing long standing relationships with our employer clients so that whether they have a quick question or they are considering making significant changes to their workforce, our clients know that they can reach out for timely advice on how best to move forward effectively, with minimal conflict.

Advising employees

Work is one of the most fundamental aspects in a person’s life, providing the individual with a means of financial support and, as importantly, a contributory role in society. A person’s employment is an essential component of his or her sense of identity, self-worth and emotional well-being.

– Reference Re Public Service Employee Relations Act (Alta.), 1987 CanLII 88 (SCC), [1987] 1 S.C.R. 313, at p. 368:

Our team of employment lawyers are keenly aware of the fundamental role that employment plays in the lives of our clients as well as how difficult it can be for people to candidly discuss their experiences in the workplace; it is why we chose to work in this field and why we enjoy what we do. We strive to provide compassionate, knowledgeable, practical and focused advice to employees. Our approach is to obtain context and discuss options and solutions.
