Employment Law Training: September 9th, 2019

On September 9, 2019, Hensel Barristers will be offering a training and information day for First Nations’ leaders, administrators, and other staff, in the area of employment law. We will be covering topics such as jurisdiction (Federal, provincial, and inherent), avoiding and responding to claims for wrongful dismissal, workplace investigations, and best practices for employers operating in an Indigenous community or context. More information and registration material to follow, but save the date if this training would benefit your community or organization. We’d love to see you there!
