Susan is a founding partner of CCP.

As a trusted advisor, Susan provides strategic advice and opinions on a full range of labour and employment law matters, including recruitment issues, human rights, employment standards, employment contracts, policy implementation, termination issues, fiduciary obligations, pay equity and independent contractor arrangements. In keeping with the firm’s practice philosophy, Susan works with employers to address and resolve workplace issues collaboratively in an effort to avoid distracting and costly litigation.

Susan represents employers in wrongful dismissal actions, litigation to enforce employee fiduciary, non-solicitation and non-competition obligations, labour injunctions, judicial review applications, Occupational Health and Safety Act prosecutions, EI and CPP independent contractor status appeals before the Federal Court, human rights, employment standards and pay equity proceedings. Susan has appeared before various provincial and federal labour tribunals and all levels of court on behalf of employers.

In addition, Susan assists employers in workplace investigations and conflict resolution, as well as providing training on a variety of workplace issues.

Susan is also a part-owner of The Employers' Choice Inc.
