The Hamilton labour lawyers at Molyneaux Law have extensive experience representing trade unions on a range of issues and wide variety of forums. Molyneaux Law believes in the value of the labour movement and proudly practices union-side labour law in Hamilton, Ontario, a city with a rich union history, as well as and across Southwestern Ontario including: Brantford, Cambridge, Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph, Milton, Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Ancaster, Dundas, and Stoney Creek.

Unions have contributed many of the workplace benefits that all Canadians now enjoy:  

  • A shorter work week
  • Better wages and working conditions
  • Compensation when workers are injured on the job
  • Employment insurance
  • Maternity and parental benefits
  • The right to work safely

Today, nearly 30% of Canadian workers belong to unions according to UFCW, Canada’s largest private sector union, including:  nurses, teachers, journalists and professional athletes, as well as the more traditionally unionized occupations like retail store clerks, manufacturing workers, miners, electricians and other construction trades workers.

Hamilton Workplace Investigations

 

Hamilton workplace investigations are critical for employers for a number of reasons. Harassment complaints have negative impacts on the workforce:  increased absenteeism, increased disability costs, more grievances, decreased productivity, increased conflict among staff, high turnover, poor morale, and ultimately higher liability and legal costs. That’s why choosing the right Hamilton workplace investigator is key to a successful resolution of these workplace issues.

And that’s not all. Increased complaints of harassment, violence, and discrimination in the workplace also affect individual employees—and not in a good way. Hamilton workplace investigations are critical because the impact on victims can, in fact, be crippling: work-related stress and anxieties; violent, aggressive or tearful behaviour at work; self-esteem problems; decreased productivity; and other long-term consequences.
