Our lawyers represent both union and non-union mining employers throughout the province, from those with small, exploratory properties to large fully operational properties.
We understand the pivotal nature of the mining industry in British Columbia, as well as the unique circumstances facing mining employers, including the effect of employee relations on production quotas. Our lawyers are well versed in the specific rules and regulations applicable to the mining industry.
Our services include ensuring compliance with workplace legislation specific to the mining industry, such as the Mines Act and the Health, Safety and Reclamation Code for Mines in British Columbia, and legislation of more general application, such as the Employment Standards Act, Human Rights Code and Workers Compensation Act. We also provide advice on strategic decision-making and decisions involving employee management and discipline, draft employment agreements and policies, provide collective agreement interpretation and represent clients at arbitration, before the Labour Relations Board, and in court.
