Information and Privacy

Unions are governed by privacy law that differentiates between the public and private sectors both provincially and federally.  We can assist unions in proceedings involving access to information and privacy legislation in all sectors.  We can also draft applications and prepare responses to applications and enquiries for information.  HHBG Lawyers represents unions before privacy commissioners and Labour Board proceedings.  We are also able to assist with the judicial reviews of such decisions.
