In October 2017, the #MeToo movement was born on social media to demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace.  The movement went viral, with millions of women coming forward with their own stories of abuse. While allegations against high-profile celebrities such as Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K. and Bill Cosby may dominate headlines, #MeToo has moved millions of women to collectively say "Time's Up".

 The increased awareness of sexual assault and harassment is certainly something to celebrate, however it should also indicate to many employers that workplace practices also need to evolve with the times. This presentation will focus on the legal and practical implications of #MeToo. 

In this presentation, you will learn:
  • Bullying and harassment in the workplace;
  • Discrimination on the basis of gender;
  • Constructive dismissal;
  • Damages for non-compliance;
  • Best practices in promoting a workplace a harassment free workplace

Who should attend: 
  • All levels are welcome

Meet your instructor

David  is an individualist. His nonconformist mindset and passion for  transformation set him apart in a profession steeped (and sometimes  mired) in tradition. Where others spot problems, David sees possibility  and promise. He understands and appreciates not just the practice but  the business of law. Add to all this his disarming wit, bellowing voice,  and lofty stature, and there's no mistaking him in a crowd.

 A trusted workplace advisor to both companies and individuals in BC's  Interior, David was the ideal choice to break new ground with our Kelowna office.  Firm in his belief that a successful business is not one based on "zero  sum" relationships (where one person suffers so that the other may  thrive), he looks forward to supporting Okanagan employers and employees  in the practice of sustainable employment and to surrounding himself  with like-minded clients.

 A prolific and plain language legal writer, David is the founder of a thought-leading employment law blog  that covers timely and novel topics in an accessible and engaging way.  He is also a dedicated community contributor, with active memberships in  an extensive network of local professional and philanthropic endeavours  including Junior Chamber International (Kelowna), Pathways Abilities  Society, Kelowna Community Resources and Chartered Professionals in  Human Resources of BC & Yukon and executive positions on the Human  Rights and Employment Law Sections of the Canadian Bar Association (BC).
