Ottawa Employment Lawyers for Federal Government Employees
Employment in the federal government or for Crown corporations is governed by a range of special legislation that makes employment issues challenging to navigate. Whether you work for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Canada Post, or have been appointed to an executive position within the federal government, there are different pieces of legislation determining how workplace disputes are handled.
The labour lawyers at Champ & Associates are very experienced in these specialized employment relationships, with deep knowledge of the relevant statutes and avenues of recourse. Champ & Associates have represented federal public service executives in many employment disputes.
How Are Federal Employment Disputes Managed?
Federal government employees are barred from suing their employer for civil damages, but they do have special rights and protections under federal law. Federal employees can grieve their termination or other employment issues before a specialized labour tribunal called the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations Board. Crown corporation employees can sue in the courts like private-sector employees, but many also have the option to seek reinstatement for unjust dismissal before an adjudicator under the Canada Labour Code.
We assist federal employees such as:
- Federal public service employees, including executives and diplomats;
- Employees of Crown Corporations; and
- RCMP and Canadian Forces members.
We will assist clients with a number of issues, from termination to labour disputes including disguised discipline, security clearances, and staffing actions. These issues are rarely seen by lawyers outside of Ottawa, and our firm is one of the most experienced in the area at helping clients find effective solutions to federal employment matters.
