Isaac is an effective, creative, and values-driven advocate for both unionized and individual employees. Whether the situation calls for conversation or litigation, Isaac deploys a broad range of tools to understand and pursue his client’s goals.

Isaac graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School. He was a summer student at the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, where he worked on files related to technology, surveillance, due process, and our fundamental freedoms. He also worked as a research assistant for a labour law professor, helping to assess the implications of the “gig” economy for workers in Canada and examining the enforcement of employment standards in cases involving agricultural and foreign workers. Isaac was an oralist in a range of moots as a law student, including the Wilson Cup (equality/Charter law) and Laskin Cup (administrative/constitutional law), and has also judged several moots. After completing his articles at a union-side labour and employment firm in Toronto, Isaac worked in-house for a large public-sector union. He has appeared before the Ontario Labour Relations Board, Grievance Settlement Board, and in private arbitrations.
