Hiring employees and managing their employment issues, taxes, pensions and working environments is a significant and ongoing undertaking for many organizations. It is one that requires knowledge about a wide scope of rules and regulations, many of which are continually in flux.
Managing this changing environment well is such a challenge because it affects so many individuals on a personal level. And when issues arise, the repercussions can be far-reaching for the individual and – particularly in the case of litigation or arbitration, human rights, harassment or discrimination – they can negatively affect the organization, its reputation, brand and financial performance as well.
McMillan routinely advises clients on employing and managing workers, including complying with provincial and federal employment laws, executive compensation, taxes, pensions, developing and maintaining employee policies, as well as dealing with employee issues through litigation, arbitration and mediation.
