Employment Lawyers Calgary
Calgary’s Choice for Employment Law
Exclusively for Employees
At YYC Employment Law Group, we take a fresh approach to employment law. We put you in touch with our Calgary-based employment lawyers directly. Beyond providing you with experienced, proven and trusted legal advice, we guarantee responsiveness and timely communication. If you don’t hear from us within a reasonable period of time (generally two business days or less) — whether it be in response to a question, request for information or otherwise — you’re entitled to a credit against the cost of your fees. That’s our promise to you. Accountability.
We’re all about connecting with our clients and the community we serve. Even better, we speak your language.
Contact Employment Lawyers Calgary today to find out more about our innovative, forward-thinking and client-focused model and how our team of dedicated employment lawyers will partner with you to resolve your employment issue.
We’re confident you’ll see the difference.
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, global companies and well-respected regional 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.
Calgary Employment Law Redefined
Look Beyond the Expected
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 an office location in the heart of Calgary’s historic Beltline district. Our character office space is a solid representation of our brand, where new meets old with a fresh, laid-back, vibrant and entrepreneurial vibe. Swing by for a coffee and a chat.
Not a fan of commuting downtown to meet your lawyer in-person?
No problem – we reserve one day a week where we’ll literally come to you and accommodate you on your schedule, and at any location you want within the City. Just say when and where and we’ll be there. No traffic congestion, directions, parking hassles or fuel costs required – that’s on us.
CAN’T FIT US IN US DURING REGULAR BUSINESS HOURS?
No worries, we’ve got you covered – we reserve one Saturday per month for weekend appointments and one day per week for extended evening hours. We’re here for you when you need us, whenever that may be.
