He regularly represents employers before the courts on wrongful dismissal and provincial offence matters, before various administrative tribunals, employment standards issues, human rights complaints, occupational health and safety (OHS) investigations and workers’ compensation appeals, and before labour arbitrators on unionized employee grievances.
