Employment and Labour Law

Employment and Labour Law


Employment and labour issues may arise from time to time in any business.  This area of law is ever-evolving and becoming increasingly complex.

The Employment and Labour Law team at Cheadles has represented clients in many of the leading court cases in Ontario, and regularly appear before many labour tribunals, with experience with Employment Standards, Occupational Health and Safety, Human Rights and Pay Equity issues as well.

Cheadles represents clients from the employer’s standpoint in the collective-bargaining process, from the negotiation and preparation to the interpretation of collective agreements, and any grievances that arise. We also represent many employee-side clients in wrongful dismissal and constructive dismissal matters, as well as Human Rights claims.

Recently, Don Shanks was approved as a Certified Specialist in Labour Law by the Law Society of Ontario.
