WEBINAR:  “A Changing Regulatory Environment and Planning Forward”

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020 @ 10:30 am PST

EMC continues to stay abreast of the changing legislative landscape and at the request of our Members is pleased to welcome Eric Ito of Vancouver, to share reflections on the first six months of the Coronavirus and its impact around trends and developments.  We will also explore how we might best prepare our businesses and workforces when it comes to the complexities of operating in a period of unusual circumstances where the future may provide some unique challenges as we move through the Fall and Winter and in to 2021.

Please join in on the conversation as we look at:


  • The Changing Regulatory Environment
  • Workforce Restructuring and Layoffs: Trends and Best Practices
  • Occupational Health and Safety: Safety Plans and Emerging Issues
  • A New Consciousness: Racism in the Workplace
  • Mental Health at the Workplace in the Age of COVID

His employment law practice includes advising employers on a range of matters including termination of employment, human rights issues such as discrimination and duty to accommodate, occupational health and safety, and employment standards complaints. In the labour context, Eric regularly assists employers with discipline and policy grievances as well as litigation matters arising from certification and collective bargaining, including injunctions.
