Event description

Description

Limited complimentary tickets! Register early for exciting networking and debate and discussion. Refreshment catered by UBC Peake of Catering. This event is kindly sponsored by the St. Thomas More Catholic Lawyer's Guild.

Young professionals, are you able to freely express your opinions at the workplace? We are all called to build a Culture of Life but sometimes you might encounter awkwardness in the lunch room or at the water cooler over issues that are important to the flourishing of a society. Also, how would you handle a situation if you disagree with company policy or if you don't subscribe fully to the prevailing opinions of our time?


You might recall what happened to the Google employee who was fired for writing a memo to challenge the company's culture. Also, the recent TWU decision has revealed that fundamental changes are afoot in the interpretation of the law, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Constitution, and the judicial process. How do all these affect young professionals today? Come and get a better understanding of your rights as an employee and as a citizen.

We have an informed guest panel:
Julianne Yeager is a lawyer practicing exclusively in the area of employment law. She is a Christian, conservative, and TWU alumna. In her legal practice, Julianne advises and represents both employers and employees, and helps both to navigate through the Human Rights Code regime that governs all BC workplaces.
