Human rights law goes beyond the scope of employment law practice and is constantly evolving. Over the course of two days, you will explore a comprehensive range of human rights law topics presented by diverse speakers.
This conference will include the ever-popular annual case law update and judicial review update. You will walk away with a substantive look at current trends and practical issues to meet the increasingly complex and sophisticated matters arising in this area. At this conference, you will:
- get up to date on the latest human rights cases before the BC HR Tribunal, BC Supreme Court, BC Court of Appeal, and Supreme Court of Canada
- learn about hot topics in such areas as human rights issues for trans people, mental health and performance management, and emotional support animals
- find out about recent developments in sexual harassment cases, including challenging non-disclosure agreements and the changing make up of the "reasonable person"
Join us on Day 1, Day 2, or both days for a discussion of these important issues.
