Areas of Practice

For over half a century, McLellan Brennan Hrga has been representing personal injury victims across Prince Edward Island

Employment & Labour

At McLellan Brennan Hrga, we understand that work is often central to an employee’s identity and that work difficulties can have significant financial and emotional consequences. We also understand that employers want to be empowered with the proper legal advice and information to minimize any legal risk to their businesses. This is why we provide legal services to employees, employers, and unions.
Employment law and labour law are currently undergoing rapid change as a result of COVID-19, resulting in fluid and ever-changing regulations and standards. Contact the team at McLellan Brennan Hrga to see how those changes may impact you.
