Employers regulated by federal labour laws face constant challenges as hundreds of new regulations are introduced each year. Increasing penalties for non-compliance intensify the need to stay proactive and informed.

We represent private and public employers across Canada in a range of industries including media and telecommunications, rail, road and air transportation, financial services, energy, postal and courier services, passenger transit and security, and federal Crown corporations and agencies.
Our integrated team monitors regulatory developments to ensure that employers fully understand their own rights and obligations — and those of their employees. Our lawyers possess extensive experience in appearing before federal regulators, tribunals and courts, including the Canada Industrial Relations Board, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal and the Federal Courts, and have also been involved in the negotiation of myriads of national collective agreements.
We have extensive experience in employment disputes, and also handle human rights and related issues, including advising and representing employers with respect to development of policies and strategies of defense in investigations or complaints.
