Marc Kitay, Partner
Employment & Labour lawyer Marc Kitay is always looking for the next big challenge. Having traversed the mountains of New Zealand, deserts of Israel and the jungles of Peru, Marc is familiar with the “drive” it takes to get the job done right, a quality that he brings to the table when representing his clients.
Marc joined Whitten & Lublin in 2015 and regularly represents employees on all types of workplace disputes, including dismissal claims and human rights claims, with an emphasis on litigation. A firm believer that work is tantamount to a person’s sense of self-worth and integrity, Marc is particularly adept at handling claims of religious accommodation and disability in the workplace.
Marc also advises employers on best practices to ensure compliance with employment standards and human rights legislation, and prepares employment contracts designed to survive judicial scrutiny.
Before joining Whitten & Lublin, Marc built and ran his own successful law practice, working with clientele who valued his hard work, empathy and personal touch. Marc enjoys public speaking and frequently conducts seminars, webinars and lectures on critical issues and employment law including employment standards, human rights, employment contracts and risk mitigation strategies.
Marc earned his juris doctor at the University of Western Ontario, where he served as President of the Labour and Employment Law Society, volunteered as a caseworker at the school’s Community Legal Services clinic, and worked as a research assistant for a law professor.

“Marc Kitay represented me and he faced what I would say a very formidable opponent that is notoriously known in the industry as a company that does not offer much, does not give way that much and is quite hard in terms of negotiating a settlement. We were faced with that challenge that day we went to mediation court but without going into any details, Suffice it to say that the case was closed that day in spite of the seemingly impossible situation to reach an agreement to conclude the case. Marc had the presence of mind and alert for any signs that will be detrimental to our case and he catches them fast and also applies the correct solution to any situation thrown at us. He always exerted fairness and respect when it comes to dealing with others and other types of situation. One wrong move during those 3 and a half hours might have been disastrous to the process. But his expertise, confidence, and being sure of the situation made us successfully conclude he case for all sides, me as the client, the respondent and the mediators. Mr. Marc Kitay, thank you for your service. It was a tough procedure we went through with a formidable opposition but you were always, calm, aware and ready to respond correctly but always fair to all sides. We went through and was successful into arriving with an agreement to conclude the case. Would not be possible without your experience and expertise. Also thank you to Mr. Daniel Lublin for all the support you contributed to this case…Thank you Marc Kitay and Daniel Lublin.”
