Employee Payroll / Severance Lawyer: Christopher Neufeld

Neufeld Legal PC: Chris@NeufeldLegal.com - 403-400-4092

With over 20 years of legal experience in corporate business law and commercial litigation, I undertook an extensive review of termination and severance pay packages and the court precedent (case law) that shapes judicial interpretation of those central employment laws. And what I discovered was the process for dealing with terminated employees, especially employees in large companies, including construction companies, was all too often seriously flawed. Core fundamentals were not being appropriately addressed and thus a series of powerful legal strategies was not being implemented on behalf of those long-serving construction employees who were impacted by these major oversights.

By taking a fresh look at fired construction employee's post-termination payments, as opposed to relying upon the standard practices that are well known to large construction employers, new strategies were developed that could challenge these larger construction companies and their high-priced lawyers. And with this new strategy, we can optimize employee demands by placing significant pressure on these large construction companies and builders and use that leverage to negotiate to the employee's advantage.

Drawing upon my early years in New York City as a corporate securities attorney on Wall Street, and than continuing to develop and hone my legal skills and expertise in Ontario and Alberta, focusing on corporate-commercial matters, I have taken this distinct experience and knowledge, and sought to develop an innovative approach to termination and severance pay packages. And having identified a unique approach to advancing a former construction employee's demand for increased compensation, challenging large corporate employers has become a central focus of my legal practice.
