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. The lawyers at Pinto Wray James LLP regularly act for businesses, organizations, and individuals before the Ontario Labour Relations Board and other administrative and regulatory bodies including tribunals, agencies, boards, commissions, self-governing professions, municipalities, health and educational institutions. Our experience enables us to guide our clients through the complex web of laws, regulations, guidelines, policies, procedures, and case law at play before the Ontario Labour Relations Board.

Specifically, we advise and represent clients involved in appeals and applications to the Ontario Labour Relations Board relating to unfair labour practices; arbitration in the construction industry; reconsideration of Board decisions; applications under the Occupational Health and Safety Act; appeals of Ministry of Labour Inspector’s orders; and applications for review of Employment Standards Officer’s order to pay or refusal to issue an order to pay, among other matters.

Our experience in labour and employment matters before the Ontario Labour Relations Board stems from working on a daily basis in labour law in the administrative justice sector at the provincial and federal level. Bar none, Pinto Wray James LLP offers its clients exceptional labour law advice and representation before the Ontario Labour Relations Board.
