As a labour and employment lawyer in Hicks Morley’s Toronto office, Simon Mortimer’s practice is focused on the strategic management of conflict and change. He consults with employers to proactively manage workplace issues without litigation or work disruption.
Simon represents employers, whether under federal or provincial regulation, in collective bargaining negotiations with a variety of unions and locals of unions. He regularly appears before labour boards (OLRB, CIRB) ensuring due process and democracy in certification applications, responding to allegations of unfair labour practices and intervening, where appropriate, in duty of fair representation complaints and decertification applications. He also provides ongoing counsel on privacy, employment, human rights and grievance arbitrations.
Simon is a proud father of two and, clients should be warned, he likes to talk about his children!
