Support for public service employees

The federal public service is Ottawa’s largest employer.

Our team is one of the most experienced employment groups in Ottawa in supporting public servants with employment law issues at the federal, provincial, and municipal levels in both official languages.

We understand the unique employment law needs of the public servants and can help non-unionized employees working in the core public service, separate agencies, and crown corporations.

Christopher Rootham, partner in our Employment group and leader of our Labour Law group has published Labour and Employment Law in the Federal Public Service.

Our team has appeared at all levels of the court, the Federal Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board, the Ontario Public Service Grievance Board, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal, and other provincial human rights tribunals.

We can support public services employees on:

  • human rights
  • harassment
  • staffing and promotional complaints
  • pension files
  • terminations
  • lay-offs
  • demotions
  • leave and disability related issues
  • Phoenix and other pay issues
