Providing Assertive Employment Law Services in Ontario

Employment law, also referred to as labour law is comprised of a set of rules put in place to regulate all interactions between employees, employers, unions and governments. In Canada, each province has its own jurisdiction over employment and labour law issues, and employers must follow the rules and regulations of the law as it applies in their province. 

Murray Miskin has been practicing employment law since 1982 when he was associate lawyer at Aiken, Capp. The lawyers at Miskin Law often represent employers and employees in both union and non-union matters throughout Ontario in all matters related to the workplace. Our experience in advocating for individuals’ employment rights, as well as the protection of employers has taken us to various federal and provincial labour-related tribunals, labour relations boards, arbitration, and sometimes appearing as counsel for employers in the courtroom.
