Just had initial consult with Barry Clapp, very impressed. Scheduling was quick and easy, nice office space, I provided some preliminary notes and outlines which Barry had reviewed beforehand so we could focus on the details and important insights right away. He answered many questions thoughtfully and honestly and was very upfront about their fixed costs throughout the various stages that could be required. Have not made a decision and moved forward yet but felt compelled to write this review, will amend with an update should I continue.

Approached to give advice in a dismissal situation, they were both very supportive and practical. In a world where courts move like molasses plaintiffs are shut out due to the clock not a poor case. Thanks for the sensible advice !

My choice of YYC Employment Law Group proves wise and productive. Their team are professional and courteous. Their service is prompt and efficient. Both Erika and Stephen provide me sound advice. Their demand letter and negotiation wins me the favorable reference letter and ideal compensation. Every time I have a question, they reply me quickly with specific counselling. It goes very well from my first meeting with Erika to the final release with the help of Stephen. Meanwhile I also thank Helen for her wonderful assistance. At the momentous point in my life, I get a helping hand from YYC Employment Law Group. Thank you all!

Calgary Employment Law Redefined – Look Beyond the Expected

Our model provides you with efficiency, value, peace of mind and certainty by offering reasonable flat-rate fees; you know what to expect from the second we start work on your file.

Our goal is to facilitate timely access to well-trained and experienced employment lawyers at an affordable price point. It’s all about you, the employee.

We exclusively practice workplace law and only represent employees – we are passionate about our work which translates into strong employee advocacy and representation.

Our employment lawyers have worked with some of Canada’s largest national law firms and have attended Canadian law schools where we excelled academically. We know employment law and previously acted for employers; we are intimately aware of how the other side works which fosters efficiency and effectiveness.

Not a fan of commuting downtown to meet your lawyer in-person? No problem – we’ll come to you and accommodate you on your schedule and at any location you want. Just say when and where, whether it be in the NW, NE, SW or SE, during the evening or on a weekend or via, FaceTime, Skype, Google Duo or any other platform you prefer. Being flexible, mobile and cloud-based has its advantages!

We are dedicated employment lawyers and exclusively practice workplace law. We provide legal advice and representation to employees in all areas of workplace related legal matters.

- wrongful dismissal and severance review;
- constructive dismissal;
- human rights, harassment and discrimination matters;
- drafting, reviewing and advising on employment agreements, restrictive covenants and non-disclosure agreements; and
