Keri Bennett is a labour, employment and privacy lawyer in Vancouver assisting both public bodies and private organizations.  Providing counsel to union and non-union employers, she also litigates labour, employment, human rights and privacy matters. Keri negotiates cost- effective settlements and also vigorously defends client’s interests before courts, tribunals, labour arbitrators and the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner.

Frequently advising employers on compliance with employment standards legislation, including payment of wages, hours of work and overtime, annual vacation and director liability, Keri also drafts enforceable employment agreements and effective workplace policies. 

Keri regularly advises employers on accommodation, discrimination and harassment, as well as termination of employment, including constructive dismissal and for-cause termination. In the unionized workplace, Keri advises on collective agreement interpretation and represents employers in labour disputes, including individual / policy grievances, unfair labour practice complaints, strikes and picketing.
