Occupational health and safety laws and Workers’ Compensation regimes across Canada govern the safety of employees and their financial well-being in case of workplace injury or disease. The issues and investigations are complicated. The penalties - which can include criminal convictions and imprisonment - are severe, and the cost of managing employment injuries are significant.
Fasken aligns the creation, audit, adjustment and enforcement of policies with laws and regulations. We write definitive guides and implement programs to manage risk, train leaders and prevent incidents from occurring.
If accidents occur, we represent employers and senior management in stakeholder communications and in discussions with investigators. We represent clients at all levels of Workers Compensation, OHS and criminal negligence (Bill C-45) proceedings
As one of the largest Labour, Employment and Human Rights practices in Canada, Fasken will address your needs consistently, concisely and cost-effectively.
