I am available for appointments pursuant to the collective agreement requirements of s. 48 of the OLRA. Pursuant to the Act, the parties may agree to use a combination of Mediation and Arbitration.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act requires:
32.0.7 (1) To protect a worker from workplace harassment, an employer shall ensure that,
(a) an investigation is conducted into incidents and complaints of workplace harassment that is appropriate in the circumstances;
Many employers (sometimes in cooperation with the trade union if one is involved) opt to have the investigation conducted by neutral third parties.
Most of my professional life has been spent as a Mediator dealing with Employers, Trade Unions and in some matters individual employees.
I spent more than 15 years as a Specialist dealing with labour matters in the Construction Industry in Ontario.
I am available to deal with your issues that require mediation.
Sometimes situations arise in which a frank discussion led by a neutral can be helpful in the workplace.
Trade Unions sometimes need the same assistance with regards to tense political differences.
I offer these services at reasonable rates. Daily and hourly rates are available.
