(Original course: Thursday, May 19, 2016)

Who should attend: Criminal lawyers, and corporate in-house, workers' compensation, and labour and employment counsel.

Learning level: All levels

Workplace fatalities are a tragic reality in a wide range of settings. When a fatality occurs, many businesses are not prepared to face the investigative machinery of WorksafeBC and the RCMP. It is not a simple matter. The WorksafeBC investigation under the BC Workers Compensation Act is a very different creature from a criminal investigation by the RCMP or city police under the Criminal Code. This comprehensive half-day program will examine the two processes with a view towards illuminating the differences and the nuances and how various factors will dictate the best course of action for a business.

At this course you will learn about...

  • the history and background of the current regulatory/investigatory regime
  • critical rights and obligations under the Workers Compensation Act
  • the S. 7 Charter considerations and their implications for workplace fatality investigations
  • practical tips and pointers on how to successfully navigate the delicate process surrounding workplace fatality investigations

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 3 hours (a minimum of 30 minutes will involve aspects of professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)

Course Chairs/Presenters
Jeff Dolan — Director, Investigation Services, WorkSafeBC, Vancouver
