Upcoming Events
Clark Wilson hosts the upcoming "BC Employers' Fall Conference: Navigating the BC Employment Landscape: Are You Ready for 2024?" on Thursday, November 2nd, 2023 at the Vancouver Club. The graphic features the headshots of Clark Wilson partner and Employment & Labour chair Andrea Raso alongside lawyers Catherine Repel and Debbie Preston.

Business owners and human resources professionals won’t want to miss this timely and informative 90-minute session exploring emerging employment topics, including how to handle rising remote work requests and medical leaves, exploring mandatory versus optional employee accommodations, plus an overview of three new laws that will be effective in January 2024 (Pay Transparency Act, Modern Slavery Act, and amendments to the Workers Compensation Act).

What We’ll Cover:

  • Remote work requests: Clarifying whether employers can force employees to return to the office and how to manage requests based on convenience and personal preferences
  • Responding to medical leaves: Covering what documentation and information employees are required to provide, and what to do about ambiguous medical notes
  • New legislation that will affect businesses and employers: A primer on the new legislation, how to successfully prepare for its roll-out, plus best practices for compliance

There will be an interactive Q&A session with our panel of Employment & Labour lawyers at the end to answer participants’ final questions.
