Our lawyers represent several First Nations employers across British Columbia, including band councils, health centres, First Nations schools, economic development corporations, social services agencies and First Nations-owned businesses.

We have developed deep and lasting relationships with our clients in this area and take the time to get to know the people involved in decision-making. In First Nations communities, most employees have a direct and close relationship with members of the band council. As such, we regularly appear before band councils to work collaboratively on achieving the best results for the council and the community.

Our services include the preparation of employment agreements and policy manuals, advising on workplace discipline and representation in litigation. We provide employment law seminars to First Nations employers, with our lawyers having delivered such sessions to hundreds of First Nations managers and administrators across British Columbia.

First Nations employers may be subject to either federal or provincial/territorial jurisdiction, depending on the nature of the activity. We are well-versed in this area of the law and ensure our clients are aware of which laws govern their workplaces and their rights and obligations under those laws.
