Labour issues may arise from time to time in any business, and therefore several members of our firm devote much of their practice to labour law, including Bill Shanks, Don Shanks and Doug Shanks. This area is ever-expanding and becoming increasingly complex, however our lawyers Bill, Don and Doug regularly attend and deliver seminars on current labour matters which may impact on employer-employee relations.
Bill, Don and Doug appear on a regular basis at many labour tribunals including the Workers' Compensation Assessment Tribunal, the Labour Relations Board and various education related panels and tribunals. In addition to general employment and labour law, our lawyers have specific 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 to the grievances that arise there from. We represent a number of private companies, airlines, and timber-related companies in this field of practice.
