Labour Law

Canadian workers face many challenges in the workplace, from ensuring that their rights are protected, to being subject to unfair discipline, to fighting to obtain the benefits that they are owed.

We provide the legal representation that unions and workers need to successfully navigate the Canadian workforce. Koskie Glavin Gordon’s  labour lawyers combine decades of legal experience in the area of labour law to provide legal, strategic and educational services to a broad spectrum of clients on the full range of labour relations issues.  Our lawyers routinely appear before labour arbitrators, labour relations boards, workers compensation tribunals and at all levels of the courts from Provincial to the superior and appellate courts, including the Supreme Court of Canada.

We recognize that effective bargaining is a key component in ensuring that workers’ interests and rights are protected. We provide our skills in the collective bargaining process, from preparing and responding to proposals to being directly involved at the negotiating table.

We have been leaders in advancing our clients' interests beyond the traditional labour relations issues, meeting modern day challenges by launching class action and immigration litigation that serve the strategic interests of not only our clients but all workers in Canada.  Clients can also expect excellent legal assistance in labour relations matters that involve a human rights or privacy component.   Finally, our firm has long provided legal education to our clients and the labour relations community more broadly.  We tailor our courses to our individual clients to address the representational needs of their members and to cover legal trends and topical issues confronting labour lawyers and representatives today.

Our firm is consistently recommended in this area by the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory and our affiliated lawyers are ranked in Chambers Global.
