Setting up a plan for senior executives or your entire workforce?

Fasken has the preeminent federal sector labour and employment practice in Canada. The federal sector includes some of the country’s largest employers, many of which have longstanding and complex relationship with trade unions. Because of this, the labour and employment issues faced by these employers often strike at the heart of their businesses.

The ever increasing attention on discrimination and human rights issues has resulted in the need for organizations to be vigilant and proactive in reassessing and reviewing their operations in the context of human rights law. Whether your organization is developing a diversity policy, assessing how to reasonably accommodate an individual’s disability or defending against a human rights complaint, Fasken human rights lawyers can help.
