With the Ministry of Labour’s increased mandate to prosecute employers for occupational health and safety violations, knowledgeable, effective, and timely legal advice is critical. When our employer-clients have an urgent or sensitive occupational health and safety issue, we respond immediately to provide prompt, practical advice and representation.
Where orders and directions are levied against our employer-clients, we have the expertise to seek their suspension pending the hearing of appeals. In addition, where prosecution occurs following quasi-criminal charges or fines, we vigorously defend organizations, directors, officers and managers throughout complex, specialized prosecutions and judicial proceedings.
We also help our clients to develop necessary policies and procedures, train managers and supervisors, and coordinate occupational health and safety audits, furnishing the necessary due diligence against any future enforcement and/or prosecution.
