Home

Workplace Safety Group has a long-standing, professional relationship with Stuart Rudner, of Rudner Law, both as its’ corporate counsel, and as a referral resource for clients dealing with issues around workplace harassment and violence, unlawful dismissal and other employment issues. All clients WSG has referred have had successful outcomes due to Mr. Rudner’s knowledge, skill and dedicated attention to the case at hand.

On a personal note, Stuart is approachable, values-centred and an exceptional communicator, stemming from his passion to help his clients. Where some might hesitate to contact a lawyer, I would recommend Rudner Law as a first stop when dealing with employment matters. WSG is fortunate to have Rudner Law on our team as legal counsel, and to the benefit of our clients.

I had a need to retain the services of a lawyer for a personal legal matter. As I worked at Miller Thomson at the time, in the IT department, I had knowledge of several lawyers I could have worked with but I chose Stuart because I felt that he had integrity and a sense of what is right and what is wrong. In the course of working with him on my legal issue over the next year, I found him to be very proactive and understanding of my issues in this matter. He handled everything with professionalism and class. I would, and have, highly recommended him to anyone that is in need of any legal advice or the services of a litigation lawyer.

Stuart was an effective and creative mediator and was able to obtain a resolution in a situation that was difficult for the parties. I recommend Stuart to others as he was also a pleasure to deal with and worked well with my client.

Stuart is a person of trust. Not just because of his knowledge and skill in the legal arena but also because of the way he treats people – with care and respect – important at all times but especially during the often tough circumstances he is helping them work through.

June 10, 2021
“We have now this complete state of uncertainty,” says Stuart Rudner, an employment lawyer and managing partner of Rudner Law. “Because we have two courts, within a period of about a month, that have interpreted the exact same issue in completely different ways.”

For First Reference, Brittany writes about a case where the employer’s behaviour was so egregious, the award granted at trial was more than tripled.

June 4, 2021
We often see appeal courts reducing damage awards on appeal, in order to bring them more in line with established case law. Ojanen is certainly an exception – in this case, the behaviour of the employer in question was so egregious that the Court of Appeal was compelled to more than triple the award granted at trial.

Stuart writes about settling vs. winning at mediation, for the Ontario Bar Association Civil Litigation Section.

May 20, 2021
Resolving a claim at mediation is good, but winning at mediation is even better. After all, anyone can settle. As an advocate, you should work to get the best result for your client, whether it is at trial or at mediation.
