Administrative & Regulatory Law in Sarnia
When determined community members and businesses seek justice, decisions are increasingly rendered in administrative tribunals. These forums for everyday Canadians and organizations are quickly replacing the sometimes overburdened court system.
Tribunals such as labour, arbitration, and regulator boards as well as commission provide actionable decisions to resolve conflict and controversy. Administrative decisions may also just be the first step in a more protracted legal process that involves appeals and courtroom litigation if you are not careful. It’s imperative to work with experienced administrative lawyers in Sarnia because a misstep could prove costly.
At the law firm of George Murray Shipley Bell, LLP, we provide determined legal representation and experienced legal services relating to a wide range of administrative law issues. Our experienced Sarnia lawyers are intimately familiar with administrative hearings and procedures that include the following forums.
Human Rights Complaints
Discrimination based on age, gender, sexual orientation or disability are violations of your fundamental human rights. In this day and age, such acts are unconscionable. Our team of administrative law professionals will fiercely protect your rights against discrimination and harassment at a tribunal or in the courts if necessary.
When lease agreements or other disputes arise, the Landlord and Tenant Board render decisions. Under the Residential Tenancies Act, this body makes rulings about rights and duties that can have a profound impact. Our team of Sarnia lawyers are committed to arguing your case and getting the best possible result.
When employees and employers part ways, a fair severance is an expectation both parties should expect. But too often, employees are terminated with little or no notice. If no severance in place of notice has been afforded a worker, grievances can be heard and resolved at an administrative hearing.
Ontario Municipal Board
Planning and zoning disagreements can result in construction sector setbacks and diminished profits. The Ontario Municipal Board provides a forum to expedite disputes and appeals under a significant number of statutes. Our experienced administrative lawyers in Sarnia have a wealth of experience earning results.
