McMahon Molyneaux Henriquez is an association of progressive Hamilton law firms practicing labour law, employment law, and human rights law. 

Together, our lawyers: Sarah Molyneaux, Roberto Henriquez and Katy O’Rourke are proud to serve unions and workers in Hamilton and throughout southwestern Ontario. 

How We Started

In 2004, Joanne L. McMahon and G. James (Jim) Fyshe joined forces in relocating their respective union-side labour and employment law practices from Toronto to Hamilton, co-founding the first firm of its kind throughout the Halton, Hamilton and Niagara regions. 

Operating as Fyshe McMahon LLP until Jim’s retirement in 2015, the pair successfully represented a variety of trade unions based throughout the Province of Ontario, along with individual employees in wrongful dismissal, human rights, and disability benefit matters, appearing in both the federal and provincial court and tribunal systems, and conducting private arbitrations and mediations. With more than thirty years of experience, Joanne is proud to continue this work.

In 2020, Joanne was joined by Sarah Molyneaux and Roberto Henriquez. Sarah and Roberto’s labour, employment and human rights law practice focuses on serving unionized workers, non-unionized workers, progressive local employers and activist organizations.

What We Do

McMahon Molyneaux Henriquez Labour & Employment lawyers and paralegals are focused on fighting for justice for workers and marginalized members of the Hamilton community. 

We prioritize cases that address workplace injustice. This includes wrongful dismissal, constructive dismissal, severance package or employment contract reviews, workplace harassment or workplace bullying cases, including sexual harassment claims, workplace discrimination, maternity or parental leave issues and toxic work environment claims. We pride ourselves on providing high-quality progressive, inclusive legal services to all Hamilton workers. 

In addition, the lawyers at McMahon Molyneaux Henriquez offer organizations support in developing the policies and practices that can help make them more inclusive, accessible employers and service providers. This includes developing policies (such as human rights policies or occupational health and safety procedures), providing human rights and employment standards training, and workplace investigations for discrimination and harassment complaints. 

As labour, employment and human rights litigators, members of our association have represented unions and workers on a broad range of labour, employment and human rights cases at grievance arbitrations, interest arbitrations, the Ontario Labour Relations Board, the Canada Industrial Relations Board, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, the Licence Appeal Tribunal (LAT), the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Divisional Court, the Ontario Court of Appeal, the Federal Court, and the Federal Court of Appeal.
