Webinar

Don't let employment and immigration issues put your tech venture at risk.

As tech companies scale up and are ready to take their business to the next level, they will require practical legal advice and innovative solutions across a wide range of areas, including intellectual property, privacy & data management, software licencing and contracts, raising funds, building and managing a team, real estate opportunities and more.

In the second webinar of our three-part series, partner Krista Schofer and associates Kristen Cruise and Cheryl Cotton will discuss the various employment and immigration legal requirements and complex issues that tech scale-ups will encounter while expanding their business in BC and beyond.

Topics will include:

  • Employment agreements – why you want to have an agreement in place; jurisdictional issues in employment standards, including remote working challenges, employees across borders and non-competition agreements
  • Retention in the current market – employee retention factors such as bonuses and equity, benefits, and onboarding; right-to-disconnect legislation
  • Immigration considerations when scaling up – national and BC-specific options for bringing foreign workers to Canada

Space is limited, so please RSVP today to reserve your spot.
