Employment & Human Rights 101 Workshop - Nanaimo

  • Greenrock Liquor Store - downstairs 1860 Dufferin Crescent Nanaimo, BC V9S 0A9 (map)

The Workshop:

What are the legal differences between an employee and an independent contractor? What are an organization's responsibilities when hiring or terminating an employee? It can be difficult to know when legal advice is needed or what type of guidance is required to properly address an issue. This workshop provides foundation knowledge and capacity to identify, plan for, and respond to legal issues that can arise.
