Jack B. Siegel photoJack Siegel, a member of the Blaney McMurtry Labour and Employment practice group, focuses largely on workers' compensation, wrongful dismissal, occupational health and safety and human rights matters. Jack is a former Chair of the Workers’ Compensation Section of the Ontario Bar Association, and has been listed in Best Lawyers in Canada for Workers' Compensation Law every year since 2006, and was named by that publication as 2014 Lawyer of the Year in the field of Workers’ Compensation in Toronto. A distinct and substantial area of practice for Jack is the field of Election and Political Law. As one of the only lawyers in Canada whose practice entails a significant and ongoing component of work in this area, participants at all levels of the political process turn to Jack to assist them in navigating the increasingly complex electoral processes and financial regulatory schemes that have arisen in recent years. Jack’s knowledge of the players throughout government also enables him to provide assistance to clients in advocacy and problem solving with various government departments and agencies, both federal and provincial, and he is regularly called upon to represent individuals and businesses before Lobbying and Integrity Commissioners at all levels. In his Labour and Employment practice, Jack represents employers, workers and trade unions. He has a wealth of experience before the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (where he served as Tribunal Counsel for three years in the 1980's), Appeal Resolution Officers of the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), the Ontario Labour Relations Board, grievance arbitrations, prosecutions under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, hearings under the Employment Standards Act, and before the Courts on wrongful dismissal actions, judicial review applications, and restrictive covenant injunction applications.
