Ontario Labour Relations Board

The Ontario Labour Relations Board is an independent, adjudicative body that plays a fundamental role in the labour relations environment in Ontario. Advocacy before the Ontario Labour Relations Board requires labour law experience and a thorough understanding of the Board’s procedures, processes, and case law. It also requires experienced counsel that can work effectively with the Ontario Labour Relations Board’s adjudicators, mediators, and specialized investigators. Clients have a right to fairness which involves some degree of input in decision-making and the right to an impartial and independent decision maker. The importance of achieving success at the Ontario Labour Relations Board cannot be overstated as the opportunity to have a decision of the Ontario Labour Relation Board reversed by a court is limited.
