Christine Krueger is a Senior Associate at MacDonald & Associates, a boutique employment law firm in Toronto specializing in Canadian Employment Law for both employers and employees. Prior to joining the Firm, Christine was a partner at an established downtown Toronto full service law firm where her practice encompassed both employment law and commercial litigation with a focus on asset based lending.
Christine has over sixteen years of litigation and advocacy experience in employment law and commercial litigation. Throughout her litigation career, she has appeared on numerous motions and trials before the Ontario Superior of Justice, the Commercial and Bankruptcy Court in the Superior Court of Justice, the Ontario Court of Appeal, the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal, and the Ontario Labour Relations Board.
In addition to being a barrister, Christine relishes the solicitor side of her practice. Christine regularly provides advice and representation to employers and employees ranging from hiring practices, drafting and reviewing employment, executive and independent contractor agreements, drafting and reviewing employee policies and procedures, handbooks, advising on terminations, drafting termination packages, and maneuvering her clients through harassment situations. Her expertise includes advising clients in the practical avoidance of litigation on contentious wrongful dismissal and constructive dismissal disputes with outside the box thinking to provide her clients with effective, definitive and timely counsel whenever necessary.
With a passion for training and education, Christine was selected in 2017 to be a part time instructor teaching Employment Law in Sheridan College’s Paralegal Program. She enjoys passing on not only her substantive, but practical knowledge of employment law to the next generation of paralegals in accordance with the licensing requirements of the Law Society of Upper Canada.
Christine’s drive in working for her clients is paralleled by her passion for volunteerism and supporting excellence in education and parent engagement. She strongly believes that support and enhancement of the community comes from being an active citizen. For the last two years, Christine has been elected the Parish Representative on the St. Andrews Catholic School Parent Council in Oakville, Ontario. She is equally proud to share her dedication and experience with her husband and two children, supporting their initiatives and goals in music, dance, language and sport.
Christine graduated with her law degree from the University of Western Ontario and was called to the bar in 2001. Prior to obtaining her law degree, Christine obtained her Hons. B.A. in Political Science and a minor in history (sum cum laude), and her Master of Arts Degree in Political Science with a minor in Public Policy from McMaster University.
