Degrees/Designations – B.A. LL.B.
Practice Areas – Employment and Labour
Practice Description – Over 95% of my mediation practice is related to employment matters, including wrongful dismissal, human rights, group disability claims, pensions and employment related tort actions.
My mediation style utilizes an evaluative model rather than a strictly facilitative one.
Background – I practiced employment law since my call to the Ontario Bar in 1979. My ADR career started in 1988 when I was first appointed as a Vice Chair of the Ontario Public Service Grievance Settlement Board, a postion that I still hold. I have worked as a mediator and arbitrator both in employment and labour law disputes since 1996. The majority of my current practice involves working as an off roster mediator under the Ontario Mandatory Mediation Program.
I am the Chair of the ADR Section of the Ontario Bar Association.
I am also the author of the Wrongful Dismissal Database, published by Carswell Publishing.
