WHAT EVERY DOCTOR SHOULD KNOW ABOUT EMPLOYMENT LAW™
What your colleagues say about our services...
"As a busy physician, it is at times difficult to deal with the business side of things. In particular, staff issues and the legal responsibilities that define our obligations to them can be quite obscure and daunting. Recently, I engaged the firm of MBC legal to develop contracts for my employees. The value of this investment was observed when I had to terminate one of my staff. Thanks to the work of MBC legal, I saved many thousands of dollars that would have otherwise had to be paid to the departing employee, and the team of MBC legal guided me and supported me throughout the process. In general, I do not endorse anything unless I believe in the issue and can see its value. To this end, I am happy to recommend the firm of MBC legal without hesitation. My decision to use this group of specialized employment lawyers was one of the smartest things I have done in business!"

Out of all the lawyers that I've dealt with (and I've dealt with quite a few), I am the most impressed with Mariana Bracic. She is so knowledgeable, quick to reply and professional. I am so grateful because she made a very difficult situation for me much easier.

I have nothing but great things to say about my experiences with MBC. The unfortunate circumstances that I underwent all ended peacefully and allowed me to get back to concentrating on my business thanks to MBC's advice and direction. My business has grown and much of that is due to a strong team of employees which MBC helped to solidify for me.

> Workplace Investigations (click to view)
Workplace investigations are becoming increasingly commonplace in Canada because of the extremely high expectations the law places on us as employers. Here are the most typical situations that call for an investigation for our clients:
• An employee files a harassment or discrimination complaint;
• There is an allegation that an employee engaged in inappropriate workplace
• The workplace has become "poisoned" and dysfunctional;
• A concern that a human rights application or complaint under occupational health
and safety legislation will be filed, or a lawsuit initiated;
• The doctor wishes to terminate an employee for inappropriate conduct but needs
to support the decision legally.
In these situations, the Courts expect that an investigation will be conducted, and that it will be done properly. Employers who fail to do so are increasingly being punished at law. If you have a situation that you believe may call for a workplace investigation, contact us. We are always on your side.

It is not uncommon for employers to spend $30,000 to $50,000 defending just one wrongful dismissal lawsuit. To keep on a level playing field with their increasingly savvy employees, employers need to get information up front, before they get into legal trouble. You may come to regard taking one of these courses as the single best practice management step you have ever taken.

Employment Risk Assessment™ ("ERA")
Are you purchasing a practice? Congratulations! It's both exciting and stressful, isn't it? What do you need to know about employment law as a purchaser?
As a purchaser, the single-biggest risk to you in a practice purchase arises from the potential liabilities related to staff. When we are consulted by potential purchasers asking what they need to know about employment law in Canada, the most important thing we need to advise them of is this: the total price that you pay for the practice will not be set out in the Purchase and Sale Agreement. To that price, you need to add what it will cost you to fix the practice's employment law problems in the 24 months or so post-closing. The latter amount can easily add six figures to your purchase price (as we often see in our work when doctors unfortunately wait until months after closing and the development of significant problems, before they contact us). We have extensive experience working with respected corporate lawyers in the health care field to provide the specialized employment law advice that is essential to a smooth purchase. Contact us before you purchase a practice for a Employment Risk Assessment™ ("ERA"). An ERA will contribute significantly to your family's assets, give you enormous protection for your new investment, and provide you with priceless peace of mind.
