About Lawrence Park South

Lawrence Park South is the area of Lawrence Park located south of Lawrence Avenue East. Lawrence Park was one of Toronto's first planned garden suburbs. Begun in the early part of the 20th century, the building of houses was interrupted by two world wars, a recession and a depression. It wasn’t until the 1950s that this neighbourhood was completed. It is now one of the wealthiest neighbourhoods in all of Canada. The neighborhood is located in a setting that includes gently rolling hills, several parks, and a ravine. Lytton Park, in Lawrence Park South, predominantly features Georgian and Tudor Style houses. Many of these houses were built from 1890 to 1930. Houses in Lytton Park are situated on large lots with lush, manicured gardens. Chatsworth Ravine runs through the area.

Areas of Practice

Labour Arbitrations

Labour arbitration is the dispute settling process in a unionized workplace. Labour arbitration can be used to resolve union grievances, contested policies, or for the negotiation of a new collective agreement.

Collective Bargaining

Collective agreements are fairly complex, and an inexpertly drafted agreement can significantly increase the cost of doing business. During collective bargaining negotiations, employers must consider every facet of employee relations for years to come.

Construction Labour

Construction labour law is more complicated and rule-driven than any other industry in the province. In Ontario, construction labour law is characterized by divisions based on sector, craft, and geographical area, as well as collective agreements that automatically apply to newly certified employers.

Transportation Labour

Labour law in the transportation sector is highly specialized. Either provincial or federal law can apply, depending on the exact nature of the work. Employers may also have certain rights to conduct drug and alcohol testing on employees. Expert legal advice is critical for companies who operate in this industry.

Aviation Labour

Labour law in the aviation sector largely falls under federal jurisdiction. Aviation labour law expertise requires an understanding of how the aviation sector works, together with a detailed knowledge of federal standards and jurisprudence.

Union Avoidance

Keeping your workplace union-free requires careful and strategic planning long before any union organizing drive even begins. One wrong move in the course of a union drive can lead to your business becoming automatically certified.

Defence to Union Grievances

A union grievance constitutes a ‘dispute’ under a collective bargaining agreement. Unions often seek to extend their power by filing grievances. Employers should always respond, with the help of a qualified labour lawyer.

Applications for Certification

Applications for Certification are, at the end of the day, decided by employees. However, employers have certain rights to participate in these matters, which can often make the difference between becoming certified or remaining union-free.

Termination of Bargaining Rights

Termination of Bargaining Rights, also known as “decertification”, occurs when employees no longer wish to be represented by their union. Any hint of employer influence during decertification can thwart the entire process.

Unfair Labour Practice Complaints

Employers have the right to communicate with employees about unionization – even in the course of a union organizing campaign. Employers cannot, however, use coercion, threats, intimidation, promises, or undue influence to turn employees against the union, or else risk an Unfair Labour Practice (ULP) complaint.
