The HR Subsection is very pleased to invite you to our first session of the new year – Employment Law Updates 2023. Each year, we look to be as informed and educated as possible when it comes to employment law. Whether it’s drafting contracts, work-from-home policies or employee terminations, with the help of our guest speaker, you will leave this session with the most current employment information available.  Meet Kelly Slade-Kerr: With over 20 years’ experience as an employment lawyer, Kelly’s focus is on solving workplace problems for employees.  She helps to navigate difficult workplace issues and disputes, especially wrongful dismissals and cases involving discrimination or harassment. She also reviews employment offers, negotiates severance packages, and assists on virtually any other employment law matter affecting employees.  As a working mother, she has developed a particular interest in assisting women who face difficulties in the workplace after choosing to have children. Kelly obtained a Bachelor of Business Administration degree specializing in human resource management and industrial relations from Simon Fraser University knowing that she wanted to practise employment law.   After graduating from University of Toronto Law School in 1998, she articled with a large national law firm and practised exclusively with its labour and employment group for several years.  She joined HHBG Lawyers, a boutique employment law firm, in 2004 and is currently the managing partner of the firm’s Surrey office. Having represented clients before the British Columbia courts, boards of arbitration, and various administrative tribunals, including the Human Rights Tribunal and the Labour Relations Board, Kelly fights hard for her clients but also sees the wisdom of knowing when a negotiated resolution is the right solution. She understands the need for practical, cost-effective solutions and is known for her common sense approach to employment law Please complete this short survey when registering for our Employment Law event: 2023 BCLMA Employment Law Update Survey – February 1, 2023 (surveymonkey.com) Any questions contact Tiej Dapp, HR Co-Chair  tld@cwilson.com
