Shane Todd is a member of the Labour, Employment and Human Rights group in Fasken Martineau's Toronto office. Shane advises provincially and federally regulated employers in the public and private sector on a broad spectrum of labour, employment, occupational health and safety, and human rights matters. He also regularly represents employers before arbitrators, mediators, administrative tribunals, courts and Coroner's Inquests.

With an undergraduate degree in human resources management and industrial relations and experience working as a human resources professional, Shane employs a focused, strategic, and practical approach to solving workplace problems. He leverages this to provide proactive, timely, and high quality advice to his clients, and to manage the litigation and reputational risks that they face.

A frequent writer on human resources law developments, Shane has authored, co-authored, and contributed to numerous articles, papers, and books. He is also routinely asked to speak about human resources issues, and to conduct training for supervisors and managers.

Shane has particular experience acting for federally regulated employers. In 2010, Shane was seconded as in-house labour counsel to one of the world’s largest express delivery companies, and in 2013/2014, Shane was seconded as in-house employment counsel to one of Canada’s leading chartered banks.
