Employment Policies and Procedures

The employment lawyers at LK Law are highly experienced in drafting clear, concise and effective employment policies and procedures. These include code of conduct, employment handbooks, internet, email, telephone usage, drug and alcohol policies, as well as compensation and benefit policies for employees.

Employment policies and procedures are often heavily scrutinized following claims of wrongful dismissal, regarding disabilities, harassment, bullying, or leaves of absences. Therefore, it is imperative to have well-drafted agreements and policies to protect the employer and to provide the employee with a clear understanding of the employer’s values, mission, compensation and benefits. 

Our lawyers can also assist with your company’s health and safety policies to ensure they are in compliance with WorkSafe BC’s requirements and with your anti-discrimination and harassment policies to ensure they are in compliance with British Columbia Employment Standards Act and Human Rights Code. It is important to review and update these policies on a regular basis to ensure you are always complaint with the applicable laws and regulations.
