Over the years, our firm has developed a substantial practice in the retail and grocery sector. We are therefore keenly aware of the unique challenges faced by employers not only as it relates to their own workforce, but also as it relates to the daily presence of customers, suppliers, and other members of the public in their workplace.
We help our retail and grocery sector clients navigate all aspects of labour and employment law, from labour relations (including applications for certification, applications for the termination of bargaining rights, and grievance arbitrations) to employment standards, and from workplace investigations to terminations. We are also well-positioned to provide legal support in relation to human rights, including as it relates to discrimination and the duty to accommodate, and privacy issues, whether in relation to an employee or a customer. We represent our retail and grocery sector clients in various proceedings, including before the Human Rights Tribunal and the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, as well as before the courts.
