Our Results and Employment Law Experience

Lypkie Henderson has advised hundreds of Albertans through the most challenging of employment situations. We strive to enforce our client’s rights and recover the damages which they have sustained due to their employer’s actions. We recognize the practical realities that many employees face upon losing their jobs and the need for concise and efficient advice. We are results-oriented and focus on understanding the best outcome for reach client and following through to ensure that we reach that outcome for them. 

We have acted against a wide range of employers, including:

    • Large corporations, including multi-national and Fortune 500 corporations 
    • Municipalities
    • Governments, Government agencies, and Crown Corporations
    • First Nations bands and related businesses 
    • Small and medium sized businesses 

Our experience covers a broad range of employment law challenges. Examples of scenarios which we commonly assist clients with include: 

  • Review and legal advice on severance packages
  • Negotiating for higher severance packages, including tax optimization, directly with employers on behalf of employees
  • Wrongful dismissal litigation through both the Provincial Court of Alberta and the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench
  • Constructive dismissal claims and litigation, including hostile work environments, unlawful temporary layoffs, and forced demotions
  • Advising employees and former employees on their obligations under restrictive covenants, including both non-compete and non-solicitation agreements
