Alexis Renaud assists unionized and non-unionized employers in numerous employment law matters. He is specialized in labour relations and regularly advises and represents unionized businesses in matters of:

  • grievance arbitration
  • litigation before administrative labour tribunals
  • application for union certification
  • negotiation of collective agreements

From 2016 to 2018, in light of his keen interest in all matters pertaining to labour relations, he was seconded on a weekly basis to a major integrated university health and social services institution in order to assist their labour relations group with grievance arbitrations, dispute prevention and resolution, and general collective agreement interpretation issues.

Before beginning his studies in law, Alexis managed a company in Montréal for several years, exercising responsibility for hiring and training of staff, the development of company policies, disciplinary cases, occupational health and safety issues and terminations of employment. His on-the-job managerial experience has proven to be an asset in his legal practice, enabling Alexis to grasp the major organizational and economic factors of importance to employers in the field of employment and labour relations.
