Employment Law Associate – Four to Six Years of Experience
October 18, 2022
Koskie Minsky is a dynamic mid-sized law firm based in the heart of downtown Toronto but representing clients across the country. We have established a unique position and reputation in the Canadian legal community, with industry recognition in respect of all our practices, including our practices in civil litigation, including employment law, public and private sector pensions and benefits, plaintiff-side class actions, and union-side labour relations.
Koskie Minsky is committed to and embraces a culture of diversity and inclusion. We welcome those who have demonstrated a commitment to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion. In addition, to correct the conditions of disadvantage in employment in Canada, we encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including members of BIPOC communities, persons with disabilities, and those who identify as women and/or 2SLGBTQ+. Please note that while all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply, preference will be given to those from disadvantaged and marginalized communities.
The Employment Practice
As part of our Litigation Department, the employment group represents non-unionized employers and employees in the full spectrum of employment law issues, from hiring to termination, human rights, workplace investigations and reviews (with a specialization in anti- racism, anti-Black racism and systemic discrimination), and disability management. In addition to our advocacy work, we provide clients with ongoing risk management advice and have extensive experience in drafting and negotiating complex employment contracts and related agreements.

- Have a demonstrated ability to develop and manage client relationships;
- Possess excellent drafting and organizational skills;
