Effective human resource management demands not only great skill and experience on the part of practitioners, but also a clear understanding of the many legal and practical issues. The demands on Indigenous employers are made even greater by the uncertainty that sometimes surrounds labour and employment law jurisdictional issues and the recent rapid growth of Indigenous businesses and enterprises.

This half-day seminar provides practical advice for managers, human resource professionals and leaders of Indigenous organizations and communities. Participants receive comprehensive seminar presentation slides, which can be an ongoing resource for participants and their organizations.

Don’t miss this chance to gain valuable insights, learn from our lawyers and connect with fellow professionals. Join us virtually or in person.
