Lisa will be discussing the successes and pitfalls of both founding her own entirely virtual organisation, and the wider challenges in successfully managing a remote and diverse workforce. She will take us through best practices for contracts for employees, contractors, freelancers and any other type of talent your organisation engages with. How to manage the termination of employees with extensive digital access and still finish up with your dignity and HR budget intact.

Additionally, what are the tools, processes, policies and best practices for managing remotely on a day to day basis?


Lisa Stam is theĀ founder of Spring Law, a virtual law firm advising exclusively on workplace legal issues for employers and executives. She practices all aspects of employment, labour, privacy, and human rights law, with a particular interest in legal issues arising from technology in the workplace.

Lisa's practice includes a wide range of entrepreneurs in the tech space, as well as global companies with smaller operations in Canada. In addition to the day to day workplace issues from hiring to firing, Lisa frequently blogs and speaks on both the impact, risks and opportunities of social media and technology issues in (and out of) the workplace, as well as the novel ways in which changing expectations of privacy continues to evolve employment law.
