We are pleased to announce that Abdul-Basit Khan (“ABK”) has joined the Firm in a leading role in the firm’s employment and labour practice. ABK has been practising management-side employment and labour law for almost 15 years and has developed substantial expertise in advising individual executives and employers on all aspects of the employment relationship, including the negotiation and drafting of executive employment agreements, enforceability of restrictive covenants, human rights considerations, labour relations issues and occupational health and safety matters. ABK has also provided corporate clients with strategic advice on significant employment and labour issues in the context of corporate transactions.
ABK has guided employers through highly sensitive workplace investigations involving allegations of fraud, sexual harassment and bullying. He has advised employers in the context of collective bargaining (including in the construction industry), collective agreement interpretation arbitration, and sale of business and related employer applications before the Ontario Labour Relations Board.
We are delighted to welcome ABK to WeirFoulds.
