Soft spoken, but with a steely resolve, Fiona Campbell represents trade unions and employees in a wide variety of labour, employment, pension, and human rights matters.
Fiona does everything from helping employees negotiate their employment contracts and termination packages, to representing employees and trade unions before labour and human rights tribunals, to arguing judicial review applications and constitutional cases in the courts. She has particular expertise in the federal public service sector, including the complex employment issues that can be faced by executives and other non-unionized employees. She also represents individual employees who have been unfairly denied access to long-term disability benefits.
In her pension law practice, Fiona provides advice and representation to unions, employees, and pension plan trustees. Earlier in her career, she found a way to marry her love of human rights law and pension law through her advocacy for equal pension benefits for same-sex couples, and also has experience conducting large scale, multi-million dollar pension litigation.
Fiona can often be found speaking at legal conferences or providing training to clients on topical issues. She is currently regional coordinator of the Ontario Bar Association’s Constitutional, Civil Liberties and Human Rights section, and is a member of the Canadian Association of Labour Lawyers.
Outside the office, Fiona is an avid reader, and is never happier than when she is travelling or planning her next trip.
