Education Law

Employment-related issues in the education sector are increasingly complex, covering a wide range of areas from collective bargaining and funding issues to professional discipline and Charter/Constitutional Law issues.

We provide advice and representation to unions representing educators in our publicly-funded schools and to unions representing faculty in the university and community college systems.

Services offered to educators/faculty and their unions include advice and representation:

  • at arbitrations and before the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB);
  • on professional regulation matters before the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) and the College of Early Childhood Educators (CECE);
  • before the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO);
  • on civil litigation/class action issues;
  • on benefits, including WSIA, EI, pension and LTD matters;
  • on organizational matters;
  • on criminal matters and in Children’s Aid Society investigations.
Our employment-related education law services are also available to educators in independent schools.
