Clients » Labour and Employment Issues with Healthcare Establishments and Social Services Institutions/Hospitals

Hospitals, Long Term Care Institutions and CSSS are confronted with an increasingly difficult position. The population is aging and the demand for their services is constantly increasing. As a result, Healthcare Institutions and Social Services Establishments are being expected to provide more services. Yet, they are being given a diminished budget to accomplish these goals. The government is constantly looking to slash healthcare and social services budgets and yet the demand for their services keeps increasing, inflation is persisting, and Employees and Unions are still demanding raises. The reality is that Healthcare and Social Services Establishments are facing a situation where even more will be demanded of them and even less budget will be given to them to accomplish it.

Unfortunately, administrative budgets and HR departments often face very severe cuts to their budget. Your HR Department cannot do without labour and employment legal services.
