Lunch & Learn with McInnes Cooper: 5 Key Employment Law Basics for Startups

May 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Growing a business takes people. In the early days, many startups have just one “employee”: the founder. But eventually, many startups and growing businesses hire employees and become, for the first time, an employer. Yet creating an employer-employee relationship carries consequences: the law grants “employees” certain benefits and protections – and imposes on employers certain obligations and liabilities. There’s a lot to know about being an employer. Join McInnes Cooper Labour & Employment lawyers Ryan McCarville and Sean Corcoran as they introduce you to five key employment law basics to get you started.

Registration is $15, lunch included!
