Reports, Highlights and Publications

The Ontario Labour Relations Board produces a monthly publication of summaries of significant decisions issued by the Board. "Highlights", along with the Board's website, is also the Board's forum for providing information to the community regarding Notices from the Chair or Director/Registrar, legislative amendments and staffing changes. Many of the cases summarized in "Highlights" are reproduced in full in the OLRB Bi-monthly Reports.
