Privacy Law

Privacy is a quickly developing area of law in the workplace.

Employers have to pay close attention to compliance and security matters as new legislation and increased social awareness of privacy issues develop. Our lawyers provide strategic and practical advice to employers based on a strong familiarity with privacy compliance and potential liability issues. We regularly advise clients on complaint procedures, Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act requests, compliance with the Personal Information Protection Act, privacy and access obligations, security requirements and areas of liability. We also have experience assisting clients with complaints and inquiries before the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of British Columbia.

Our lawyers regularly develop and review privacy-related policies and procedures, and train employees, supervisors and managers on privacy compliance. Our experience in this area means that we can work with employers to provide practical and efficient solutions to problems that arise, and ensure that workplaces are in continuous compliance with privacy law.
