Guiding You Through The Complexities Of Labour Disputes
Labour lawyers specialize in employment law issues arising in a unionized employment context. By comparison, an employment lawyer deals with employment law issues in non-unionized workplaces.
At Blackburn Lawyers, our legal team leverages our comprehensive knowledge of labour laws and rights to help you fight for fair and just outcomes in employment disputes involving unions. We offer solid legal advice and support to a variety of industries and businesses throughout Richmond Hill and the Greater Toronto Area.
Developing Your Case, Step-By-Step
Typically, your first step should be to speak with your union representative to initiate the process and obtain the union’s assistance in advancing your grievance. In some cases, you may require the services of skilled labour lawyers to assist you where you find that your union is not acting in your interest.
Comprehensive Knowledge Of Union Labour Disputes
As employment lawyers, we have the skills to advise you regarding cases of wrongful dismissal, constructive dismissal, discrimination and harassment and other matters related to the workplace. If you are represented by a union, the wording of your applicable collective agreement will set out the steps for dealing with any complaint (grievance) up to and including arbitration.
Unions have their own specialized rules and regulations. Our firm understands how they apply to your claim, and how to build your case to protect your rights as a unionized employee.
