The aim of this presentation is to provide basic information to help sole practitioners and law firms handle their employment relationships in a way that reduces cost, uncertainty and the risk of litigation.

The most important tool an employer has to establish the employment relationship is the written contract of employment.  For that reason, this paper will focus on the benefits of written employment contracts to a large degree.

While this presentation will not teach you how to address all the issues that may arise, it should give you an understanding of the complexity of the employment relationship at law in Ontario, but also reassure you that this complexity can be addressed and the attendant costs contained by good planning and seeking out the assistance of an employment lawyer when required.
