[Upcoming Seminar]
BC Employers’ Spring Conference – Risky Business:
A Crash Course for BC Employers on Terminations, Damages & Prohibited Actions


Business owners and human resources professionals won’t want to miss this timely and informative 90-minute session from Clark Wilson’s Employment & Labour lawyers exploring emerging employment topics, including how to terminate personnel without written agreements or for just cause, examining trends on increasing awards for notice and human rights damages, prohibited actions and how to ensure your teams are not engaging in such activities under the Workers Compensation Act, and an open Q&A period to ask your burning employment questions.

What We’ll Cover —

  • Risky Terminations: how to terminate employment if there is no written agreement or enforceable termination provision, terminations for cause, and best practices around managing these types of terminations
  • Damages: an overview of the recent trend in increases to damage awards for employment cases in the courts and human rights complaints, including what to be aware of and how to mitigate risk
  • Prohibited Actions: previously known as discriminatory actions, we will explore what constitutes a prohibited action under the Workers Compensation Act, why these types of claims are becoming increasingly common, and information on best practices
  • Q&A session: participants can pose their own queries to our panel of Employment & Labour lawyers
