Back by popular demand, the BC CCA’s annual employment workshop with Vancouver law firm Bull Housser always receives rave reviews.
In today’s workplace, employers face new challenges in dealing with human resources issues. From bullying and harassment to dealing with mental health issues, from privacy to dealing with social media concerns, it can be difficult to stay on top of the potential impact these issues may have on your organization. This leading edge session will will highlight ten recent court decisions that could impact your business. Three senior lawyers from Bull Housser will present not only current law and best practices, but also ideas on how minimize your risk exposure.
The Top Ten:
- discrimination claims on the basis of allergies to scents and family status;
- the limits of an employer’s duty to accommodate
- dismissals for after-acquired cause
- dismissals for breaching privacy policies
- dismissals for insubordination and profanity in the workplace
- the importance of clearly drafted termination provisions in employment contracts
- how courts consider age as a factor in determining severance
- clarification of the definition of “disability” under human rights legislation
- increasing damage awards from human rights tribunals; and
- what recourses are available to an employer who is the subject of a frivolous human rights complaint.
