Rosalie handles a broad spectrum of workplace matters, including: wrongful dismissals, constructive dismissals, employment standards claims, employment and contractor agreements, workplace human rights and accommodations, terminations, investigations, restrictive covenants, workplace policies, and occupational health and safety matters.
Rosalie particularly enjoys helping workplaces navigate through sensitive and complex workplace matters to ensure they remain in compliance with all relevant legislation, and respect the needs of all employees.
Rosalie previously sat on a Human Resources Committee at a local board of trade. She advised various member businesses and human resource professionals about the implications of relevant labour and employment matters on businesses.
As a high school student, Rosalie travelled to Queenstown, South Africa, and taught literacy and leadership programs at a local junior school. The school’s mission was to provide accessible education, in English, to students from local rural townships. Rosalie spoke to students who travelled for hours by foot each day, as this was the school closest to their home. Rosalie realized the importance of accessibility in education and services. This experience drove her to become a lawyer and ensure access to justice for all clients.
An interesting tidbit
Rosalie enjoys cooking and baking. She often makes her dishes from scratch, relying on her tastebuds rather than recipes. Her favourite dessert to bake is double chocolate fudge cake.
