Employers’ Presentation Series: Understanding Workers’ Compensation and Occupational Health and Safety

By Alfred Kempf
Categories: Employment Law, Firm News

Pushor Mitchell is pleased to present “Understanding Workers’ Compensation and Occupational Health and Safety,” the next installment in our employment law series, Navigating the Seas of Change.

Our workers’ compensation scheme, which includes occupational health and safety regulations, is considerable in both size and complexity, encompassing everything from workplace injuries and occupational diseases to workplace bullying and how high railings need to be.

This presentation will provide high-level and practical insight into BC’s Compensation system. Senior employment lawyer, Alf Kempf, will describe WorkSafeBC’s intake and initial assessment process, the appeal process and strategies that an engaged employer can use to contest doubtful claims. Accompanying Alf will be Violet Frost, HR Manager with Agility Fuel Systems, to discuss the practical realities of working with WorkSafe BC and injured employees.

The presentation will be held May 20, 2015 in the Pushor Mitchell boardroom. To register, please enroll through our Eventbrite page: Understanding Workers’ Compensation and Occupational Health and Safety
