When I started corresponding with Erika, I knew that I picked the right lawyer. Her emails were prompt and her legal insights and honest advice were spot on. I felt I could trust her. As a result of Erika’s suggestions and guidance, my employment legal mater was resolved fast. If you are looking for knowledgeable and straight forward lawyers, I highly recommend YYC Employment Law Group.

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 !

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.

We are life-long Calgarians and community-based lawyers knowledgeable of the local labour market and regional dynamics. We’ve grown-up in Calgary and worked here, just like you, before becoming employment lawyers. We’ll navigate Calgary’s complex legal landscape for you.

We maintain a centralized business location at one of the City’s coolest, most vibrant and entrepreneurial downtown coworking spaces. Our large private offices provide the confidentiality and privacy afforded by a traditional office space, with a much fresher and enjoyable vibe and at one-third the cost; we pass these savings on directly to our clients by keeping our overhead costs low.

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. Our employment lawyers are true subject-matter enthusiasts and are dedicated to the cause. In fact, we know employment law so well, we translate it into plain English for you. We will provide you with client-focused advice and representation in all areas of employment law including, among others:

- 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
- occupational health and safety matters.
