Boris Subara is an associate in Fasken’s Ottawa office and is a member of the firm’s Labour, Employment & Human Rights group. He practices in all areas of labour and employment law and provides practical advice and representation to employers and management on a wide range of issues that arise during the course of the employment relationship.
Among other things, Boris advises both provincially and federally regulated employers with respect to terminations, human rights issues, the management of absenteeism, administration of discipline, use of independent contractors, accommodation of injured or disabled workers, workplace investigations mandated under occupational health and safety legislation, and any employment issues arising in corporate transactions, such as mergers and acquisitions. In addition, Boris regularly drafts and reviews employment agreements, confidentiality, non-solicitation and non-competition agreements, workplace policies, programs, and other similar documents to help his clients stay updated and comply with the constantly evolving labour and employment law landscape.
Boris’s practice also includes a strong focus on employer advocacy. He represents clients in a broad range of employment disputes, including employment and human rights litigation and labour arbitrations. He has appeared at all levels of the Ontario courts and before various administrative tribunals, including federal and provincial labour relations boards and human rights tribunals. He also frequently attends mediations, where he always strives to achieve a positive outcome on behalf of his clients.
Boris is a graduate of the Programme de droit canadien, a joint common law and civil law program (J.D./LL.L.) at the University of Ottawa. He maintains a fully bilingual practice.
Prior to joining Fasken, Boris practiced labour and employment law at a national full-service firm in Ottawa.
