The employment lawyers at Lindsay Kenny are highly experienced in drafting and enforcing employment policies and procedures. These policies and procedures include code of conduct, employment handbooks, internet, email, telephone usage, drug and alcohol policies, as well as compensation and benefit policies for employees. Our lawyers work diligently to ensure that your company’s health and safety policies are in compliance with WorkSafe BC’s requirements, as well as anti-discrimination and harassment policies that are in compliance with British Columbia Employment Standards Act and Human Rights Code. These policies and procedures must be updated frequently to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
These policies are often heavily litigated following claims of wrongful dismissal or claims regarding disabilities, harassment, bullying, or leaves of absences. Therefore, well-drafted agreements and policies are essential to protect the employer from such claims. Such policies also benefit the employee because they provide guidance and information regarding the employer’s values, mission, compensation and benefits.
