Our employment and human rights practice group works to create proactive custom strategies and policies to help teams perform better, navigate change, and enhance culture for lasting success.
Gillespie’s human rights and employment lawyers are trusted, sought after advisors by companies large and small across BC.
One of our staff members has just informed senior managers she is filing a bullying complaint. What steps do we need to take?
If your organization doesn’t have a bullying policy and strategy in place, expert legal guidance early on can make a significant difference to the outcome. Thanks to our decades of experience, we’re able to foster effective solutions for your business. For specific steps to take immediately following a complaint, please call our employment and human rights lawyers.
We have a team that hasn’t embraced a new direction the company is pursuing. This has led to poor performance and morale across the organization. What can we do?
A big part of our employment law practice involves advising and training employers to recognize issues and develop strategies to deal with them in lawful, respectful ways that suit all parties.
In a time of organizational change, many companies face challenges with getting longstanding employees to embrace new ways of doing things. For those staff who don’t want to be a part of the new culture, this may be a time to consider how an employment lawyer can help guide a positive parting of ways. Please reach out so we can learn more about your situation and suggest some more specific paths to suit your goals.
