Meet your presenters

Iain Murray

Iain Murray started with Sterling BackCheck in 2005 and has been responsible for the development and management of our Criminal Record Check products. Iain advises organizations on background screening policy and implementing new screening programs.

Adriana Wills

Adriana, partner at Harris & Company, advises and advocates for clients on workplace law matters, with  emphasis on labour relations, human rights, and employment issues. While  representing clients in both the public and private sectors, Adriana  has particular expertise with municipal and health employers, as well as  with the broader public sector, including crown corporations. With over thirty years' experience advising on employment relationships,  Adriana has a foundational belief that clients want practical solutions  to their workplace problems. Clients regularly consult Adriana from the  outset of an issue to receive her assessment of the problem from a  legal context. By acquiring in-depth knowledge of a client's operations,  business objectives, and other factors, she is able to provide options  that are relevant, contextual, and avoid legal and other risks. Adriana believes in working as part of her client's team to ensure  managers and supervisors are aware of potential pit-falls and know to  seek advice in a timely way. She has developed and presented training  ranging from first-line supervisory skills to more complex subjects  relating to the application of human rights principles. As an advocate, Adriana is focused and relentless. She has appeared  before arbitration boards, the Labour Relations Board, the Human Rights  Tribunal, and at the BC Supreme Court and Court of Appeal. 

Veronica Ukrainetz

Veronica has a BA in English literature accompanied by a Minor in Law in the Liberal Arts from University of Calgary and a Law Degree from Dalhousie University. Veronica is a strong and passionate advocate for and advisor to her clients. She leverages her over 20-year immersion in workplace law, a preference for practical solutions and a talent for understanding human behavior to assist employers in developing and maintaining a productive, accountable and respectful workplace. Although she enjoys being in a court or hearing room, she recognizes that her clients would rather direct their resources to running their organizations and that the best solutions are those reached within the workplace, not the courtroom.
