The construction industry is unlike any other in our country. In a number of provinces, there is a specialized statutory framework for construction labour relations which, in of itself, sets the industry apart from all others. In Ontario, only a handful of boutique law firms regularly practice and advise clients in the construction industry on labour relations matters and CCPartners is one of those firms. We understand the intricate nature of the ICI (Industrial, Commercial and Institutional), residential, power and other construction sectors and the unique labour relations regime that governs each. CCPartners provides strategic advice and legal representation to all sizes and types of organizations in this sector from construction industry associations, contractors, suppliers, sub-contractors and sole proprietorships. We provide services in all areas of labour relations including union certification, jurisdictional disputes, common employer applications, construction industry grievances and collective bargaining.
CCPartners also defends companies, owners and supervisors in the construction industry charged under applicable occupational health and safety legislation as well as provide advice and training on safety compliance. We also regularly speak to construction associations on issues relating to health and safety and WSIB compliance. In addition, we provide a wide range of advice to construction employers on navigating the complex area of WSIB obligations in the construction industry. We also advise construction employers on all areas of employment law including wrongful dismissal, human rights and employment standards.
