  • An employer was facing numerous grievances in relation to a single employee. This was a complicated case because of the high number of grievances, documents and witnesses. The case proceeded to arbitration, however, due to the effectiveness of the way Leanne helped present the employer’s case, the union ultimately withdrew the grievances.

    "We were successful because we were thoroughly prepared and because we maintained a respectful and collaborative relationship with the union throughout."

  • A public institution came to Field Law seeking advice about its obligations under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPP Act).

    While the FOIPP Act can be complicated, Leanne helped break that complexity down by offering an opinion clearly setting out the public institution’s obligations and providing specific and practical recommendations to the public institution on how to meet those obligations.
