Labour & Employment

Labour and employment law is the body of law that governs the rights and restrictions of working people and the organizations that employ them.

At Lawson Creamer we provide strategic advice to both employers and employees, in unionized and non-unionized environments. We are experienced in Human Rights legislation and bring a wealth of experience to any labour and employment issue.

Collective Bargaining Agreements

Whether it is your first collective bargaining agreement or you have a long history of negotiating CBAs, our lawyers have assisted both management and unions in achieving fair and comprehensive labour agreements to ensure productive workplaces and fairness for employees and employers.

Human Rights

Our lawyers have represented the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission, employers and employees in some of the most complex Human Rights matters in New Brunswick. Our lawyers regularly train employers on developments in Human Rights Law and we advise individuals and businesses on Human Rights complaints and discrimination issues on a regular basis.

Employment Contracts

Our lawyers have experience negotiating employment contracts on behalf of companies and individuals, including independent contractors. We can help to identify the risks and benefits as well as enforce the terms and conditions of employment contracts.
