Peter Straszynski

Peter Straszynski is a partner in Torkin Manes’ Labour & Employment Law Group. He assists employers with all of their labour & employment issues, from the hiring to the post-termination stages of employment, in both the union and non-union settings.

In the non-union environment, Peter assists employers with contracts of employment, restrictive covenants, workplace policies, proactive advice on compliance with Employment Standards and other employment-related legislation, strategic direction on discipline and termination, the preparation of severance packages, the settlement or litigation of all manner of workplace disputes before the courts and administrative tribunals, including wrongful dismissals, applications for injunctive relief, Employment Standards and Employment Insurance proceedings, and the defence of charges under the Occupational Health & Safety Act.

In the union environment, Peter helps employers resist union certification attempts, deal with daily administration of collective agreements, defend unfair labour practice complaints or other applications under the Labour Relations Act and resolve or litigate grievances before boards of arbitration.

In either setting, Peter regularly advises employers on human rights matters and where necessary defends them in proceedings before the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal.

Peter is regularly called upon by the firm’s corporate and insolvency lawyers to deal with the labour & employment law implications inherent in the purchase and sale of a business or in the case of receivership or insolvency.

Peter is a regular contributor to Human Resources publications and regularly presents educational seminars for employers, industry associations or other professionals, including fellow lawyers.
