Lawyer & Workplace Investigator
Amrita Turna’s practice focuses exclusively on conducting workplace and institutional investigations and climate audits (or workplace assessments). Having conducting investigations into a broad variety of allegations, including harassment and discrimination, Amrita is well versed in both the procedural requirements of a thorough, fair and timely investigation, in addition to the substantive requirements for finding whether conduct breaches an internal workplace policy or applicable legislation. Amrita assists both public and private sector clients with complex workplace investigations and audits, including in unionized work environments.
Before joining Mortimer Khoraych, Amrita worked at a prominent labour and employment law firm where she began her workplace investigations practice. Amrita also advised clients on all areas of workplace law, including human rights, labour relations, wrongful dismissals, workplace harassment and violence, disability management, and employee misconduct. She also represented clients before labour arbitrators, administrative tribunals and in court.
Amrita holds a Master of Industrial Relations and Human Resources from the University of Toronto. With her expertise in industrial relations, Amrita is particularly well-suited for workplace investigations and audits conducted in unionized work environments.
Amrita completed her Juris Doctor at Osgoode Hall Law School, where she was actively involved in the university community. Amrita served as a Director for the Osgoode Women’s Network and worked as a legal caseworker at the Community and Legal Aid Services Program (CLASP), the Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic, and the Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture.
Amrita is a member of the Law Society of Ontario, the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers and the South Asian Bar Association of Toronto.
