Legal tips for your tech scale-up part II: Employment and immigration law

May 17, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


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.

Join us on May 17 for the second webinar in our miniseries, where partner Krista Schofer, associate Kristen Cruise and articling student Cheryl Cotton will discuss the various employment and immigration legal requirements and complex issues that tech scale-ups will encounter while growing 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

We look forward to having you join us. Please RSVP above to secure your spot.

This is the second webinar in our Legal tips for your tech scale-up three-part miniseries. Watch part I: Tech agreements and intellectual property »

*This program is eligible for up to one hour of substantive CPD credits with the LSO, the LSBC and the Barreau du Québec.
