Occupational Health and Safety law involves the representation of employers dealing with issues under Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act or, in the case of employers which are federally regulated, the Canada Labour Code. Increasingly, the obligations and potential liabilities under these statutes represent a significant responsibility and risk for employers. We offer assistance with a wide variety of related matters, including:

  • design and drafting of health and safety programs and policies;
  • facilitation of workplace violence assessments and audits;
  • staff education and training;
  • investigations and support in the event of workplace accidents or allegations of harassment;
  • representation on charges filed under applicable legislation in the event of workplace accidents;
  • representation on applications filed by employees or unions before labour relations boards.

Hello, finally stopping by to say thank you for everything! I had the honor of having Jill McCartney work my case, amazing person to work with she is very nice, explains things very thoroughly. No complaints. - K.W.

As the COO of a midsize company I contacted Siskinds with regards to an intricate and somewhat challenging H.R. issue, and we were directed to Christopher Sinal. Upon review of this complex situation, his in depth knowledge of H.R. law allowed us to construct a clear and strategic plan. Phone calls and email enquiries were dealt with efficiently and timely. Chris displayed his competency and confidence in our final negotiations to bring closure to the case. We appreciate his preparedness and professionalism in representing our firm. - B.D.

When I was reflecting on the year 2020, and thinking of the people that had the most impact on me, you [Rasha El-Tawil] quickly came to mind. I was stressed and uncomfortable for the past few years, but when you took my case, I have since been able to relax and focus on other aspects of my life. I want to take a moment to thank you for making my 2020 easier. Not only have you contributed to my personal case, but you’ve also taught me the traits that an amazingly kind and intelligent lawyer should have. -T.H.
