Catherine Pronovost practises employment and labour law, focusing primarily on occupational health and safety and labour relations. Such duality gives Ms. Pronovost an interesting edge, as often health and safety matters have an impact on labour relations, and vice versa. Ms. Pronovost has a practical approach to workplace challenges and commits to finding simple and efficient solutions, keeping in mind her clients' particular approach and goals with respect to management of human resources.
She acts frequently in litigation matters for clients in both unionized and non-unionized environments, particularly regarding the management of employment injury claims, health and safety prevention mechanisms, interpretation of collective agreements, disciplinary management and the application of labour standards. Ms. Pronovost also advises clients of the firm on human resources management and labour law matters generally.
Ms. Pronovost was part of the BLG labour and employment team from 2006 to 2010. She then joined another major Canadian law firm. She has been back at BLG since October 2018.
