AVIATION & Pilots EMployment & COnduct Lawyer

We understand that the aviation industry generally, and pilots in particular, are subject to strict regulation, as well as employee, employer and passenger complaints. We understand the demands placed upon them by regulators, by employers and employees, and by the public.

We help employer and employees involved in the aviation industry. Employment law situations, regardless of whether you are the employer or employee, can be extremely complex, where what is written as the statutory rules and entitlements is only the tip of the unwritten court-made employment iceberg. Employment contracts, confidentiality agreements, pay and benefits, harassment, and dismissal can all involve complex legal issues where timely advice from a lawyer is required to prevent or reduce workplace conflicts, and secure or defend against entitlement claims. 

We help pilots throughout Canada who are facing professional misconduct, competence, fitness to fly, administrative, civil negligence or criminal proceedings. We'll give you our considered legal opinion on the likely optimal outcome of your case, negotiate for you with you, and appear as your advocate. You'll have a strong ally to lean on at every stage of the proceedings. 

Pilots should not try to go up against the government or their employers alone without legal representation. Professional conduct proceedings unfortunately don't have the same checks and balances that are inherent in the court-based civil and criminal justice system. Inconsistent regulatory policies, unreliable evidence of alleged misconduct, and incoherent sanctions may be the result of uncontrolled proceedings if you don't have an advocate to hold your regulator to account.
