Whether you are a business owner, a human resources manager or an individual employee, Bergs Law can provide the legal assistance your employment issues require.
Christopher Bergs has been practising exclusively in the area of employment and labour law since 2008 and is well-versed in the legal issues affecting today’s Ontario workplace.
In the current business environment, employers need to be aware (and wary) of the myriad legal regimes governing their relationships with their employees including Employment Standards, the common law of employment contracts, Human Rights, Occupational Health & Safety and WSIB.
Chris works closely with employers to help them manage their employees in a way that achieves business objectives while avoiding legal problems. If issues do become contentious, Chris is a creative negotiator and a tireless advocate.
Services available to employers include advice and representation regarding hiring and employment contracts, employment policies, employee discipline, accommodation of disability and family status, wrongful dismissal litigation, Ontario Labour Relations Board proceedings, Human Rights applications, union grievances, collective bargaining and WSIB/WSIAT matters.
Individual employees are also welcomed as clients for such matters as severance negotiation, wrongful dismissal litigation and human rights applications. Now more than ever, with more frequent downsizing, staffing changes and a tougher business climate, employees are well-served by seeking the advice of an experienced employment lawyer to ensure they are being treated fairly.
