Employment/HR/Human Resources Lawyer for First Nations / Inuit & Métis Nation
As a federally governed private sector employer, First Nations must comply with the standards set out in the Canada Labour Code (C.L.C.). It is important that First Nations employers understand the CLC and that they have Human Resources policies and practices that comply with the minimum standards set out in the CLC. We have been practicing in this area of law since the late 1990's, representing a number of First Nation organizations along the James Bay Coast together with their Umbrella Organizations such as: Education Authority, Health Services and Power Corporation. We have also been assisting the Timmins Native Friendship Centre and continue to assist the Ininew Friendship Centre in HR related matters. We also provide training to their Board of Directors who sit on First Nation Organizations to ensure compliance with the CLC. In addition, we have the knowledge to draft, revise and update employment Human Resources policies for these types of organizations.
