With the largest labour and employment practice group in Manitoba, we provide local, national and international clients with services in all aspects of labour relations and employment law.

TDS lawyers provide services in connection with all aspects of labour relations and employment law matters. We represent clients in proceedings before the Manitoba Labour Board, the Canada Industrial Relations Board and boards of arbitration under collective agreements.

Our lawyers negotiate and draft collective agreements, acting as spokespersons at the bargaining table and advising clients on the interpretation of such agreements.

We advise clients on legislation affecting employment relationships, such as employment standards, human rights and workers compensation, policing and military employment law, and act for clients in connection with preparation of employment contracts and employee manuals. We provide advice with respect to termination of employment relationships and appear in court in wrongful dismissal actions.

The firm has experience in dealing with issues of human rights, sexual harassment, workers compensation, policing and military employment law, disability and absenteeism management, pensions, workplace health and safety and pay equity.
