Our Employment Law Firm


Rubin Thomlinson was founded with the goal of giving employers the support they need to respond to legal issues practically and effectively; to develop preventative strategies to help minimize problems in the first place; and to help employees navigate the employment law issues they encounter as they progress through their careers.

Our clients are both employers and employees from across Toronto, the GTA and Ontario. This makes us better lawyers because we are able to understand all of the issues that arise in the workplace.

Fourteen years later, that’s still our goal and what continues to motivate us. As Toronto’s leading employment law firm, we are home to a group of highly experienced lawyers who are dedicated to finding optimal legal solutions to your challenging workplace issues.

Toronto employment lawyers and founding partners of the firm, Janice Rubin and Christine Thomlinson, are also frequently engaged to solve ongoing disputes in workplaces across Canada as third party neutrals, either as workplace investigators or mediators.

Our Team

We have one thing in common: our dedication to finding the best solution to your employment law issues. Each one of us stands apart as a highly skilled legal expert focusing on such areas as: wrongful dismissal, human rights, employment contracts, workplace accommodation, and harassment. Together, we offer a blend of experience and legal insight you won’t find anywhere else.

We’re not going to assign you a team of employment lawyers if you only need one or two. And we won’t propose tactics that aren’t essential to the most effective outcome. Before we do anything, we take the time to sit down with you, discuss your situation and determine the most efficient method to get you the best possible outcome.  What we will do is provide you with a cost-effective and practical solution that is tailored to your specific needs.

That’s our approach – one based on honesty, understanding and trust.
