Calgary Employment Agreements Lawyers

Proudly Helping Employees Understand & Uphold Their Rights in Alberta and Beyond

At Guardian Law Group, we know firsthand that the employment agreement is one of the most important legal documents in the area of employment law. Employment contracts specify the terms and conditions between employers and employees and helps to create certainty for both parties. Employment agreements generally cover things like:

  • Salary
  • Bonus eligibility
  • Work expectations
  • Discipline procedures
  • Probation and termination provisions
  • Confidentiality protocols
  • Workplace safety and health compliance
  • Human rights policies and procedures
  • Non-compete provisions

If you are employed, then you have a legal contract with your employer that is referred to as the employment agreement. Employment agreements can be either oral or written. Oral employment agreements are just as enforceable as written contracts.

What Makes an Employment Contract Enforceable?

Not every employment contract is enforceable, and courts have ruled in the past that uncertain or ambiguous language contained in employment agreements should be interpreted in favour of the employee.

Contracts must be drafted with clear and concise language to avoid future issues regarding interpretation and enforceability, especially when it comes to termination clauses. While an employer can limit an employee’s entitlement to further severance, they cannot contract the employee out of the statutory minimums governing termination under Alberta Employment Standards Code. Contracts can also be invalidated if the employer alters the terms of employment without giving notice or obtaining the employee’s consent.
