An ex-employee left with my client list and is soliciting my clients.  What can I do?



Our objective is to provide our clients with professional and customized legal solutions that save them money.

Labour Law

The guiding principle in labour legislation is employee protection. The recent trend is making it more and more difficult for a business to terminate a non performing employee's position without having to pay a large amount as severance.

It is important for any business to develop and implement a clear set of policies and guidelines that employees must follow. It is of greater importance for a business to monitor compliance with these policies, issue written reprimands when these policies and guidelines are not followed and keep written evidence of these reprimands and warnings.

We work with businesses to develop and implement employee policies, including personal internet usage, trade secrets and confidential information, and to provide them with the procedures and forms required to enforce compliance with these. This allows our clients to be well positioned should they wish to terminate a non performing employee without having to pay a large amount as severance. Our solutions are educational in nature and designed to be implemented by our clients without our constant intervention. Our objective is to provide our clients with professional and customized solutions that save them money.

Another important issue addressed while implementing these policies is the elaboration of an employment agreement. In addition to addressing usual issues such as work description and vacations, our agreements go further and seek to protect our client's interest and assets. We make it a point to address such issues as confidentiality undertakings, trade secrets, non-solicitation of employees and clients and non-competition. This way, should an employee quit or be terminated our clients are well protected and can seek quick and effective legal remedies to protect their intellectual property, trade secrets and clientele.

When the need arises, we possess the experience and expertise to represent our clients in litigation matters pertaining to employment legal issues.
