Back by popular demand, the BC CCA’s annual employment seminar with Vancouver law firm Bull Housser always receives rave reviews.

In today’s world, employers face new challenges in dealing with human resources issues. From medical marijuana in the workplace to expensive interviewing mistakes, from “work from home” risks to privacy expectations 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 highlight recent court decisions that could impact your business. Employment lawyers from Bull Housser will present not only current law and best practices, but also practical ideas on how minimize your risk exposure.

Free! Members who register for this workshop are welcome to invite their company’s senior HR person as a BC CCA guest. Just e-mail the office after you register and provide the person’s name and job title.
