Melanie Booth Presenting at the

CPHR BC Legal Symposium 2021

MELANIE BOOTH OF THE EMPLOYMENT & LABOUR GROUP IS PRESENTING AT CPHR BC LEGAL SYMPOSIUM 2021 ON FEBRUARY 4, 2021

The effects from the pandemic in 2020 have brought both novel and challenging employment law shifts, unlike in previous years. As we prepare for the new year, employers will be required to continually monitor and stay informed of new legal developments as they plan to effectively manage their workplace obligations in 2021.

The Chartered Professionals in Human Resources (CPHR) BC & Yukon have put together the Legal Symposium 2021 Series from January 28 to February 18, 2021, where expert lawyers including KSW’s Melanie Booth will address the most pressing employment law and workforce challenges, accommodation updates, health and safety and all the potential impacts employers may face as the pandemic continues to affect organizations. 

Join Melanie Booth’s presentation on February 4, 2021 to learn How Organizations Can Navigate Remote Work and Its Risks.

With the pandemic’s shift from office centred work to remote work, employees are making due by using devices and spaces that may not be ideal. There are additional risks that remote work brings to organizations and this session will provide some helpful tips to safely and effectively navigate remote work in your organization.

Melanie will cover the following topics related to remote work: 

  • Legal considerations
  • Employee performance management
  • Occupational health and safety considerations
  • Family status and accommodation
  • Privacy concerns
