About Greg Gowe

I am an in-house lawyer for a large telecommunications company in Canada. I am also a Chartered Professional in Human Resources. At my company, I am responsible for the employment law and pension & benefits law portfolios. 

Prior to my in-house position, I was an associate lawyer in the Lawson Lundell LLP Labour and Employment Group for close to five years. My practice at Lawson Lundell LLP involved advising clients - both organizations and individuals - on a broad range of labour and employment law issues, as well as representing them at court and various labour and employment administrative tribunals.

I have also been a Staff Lawyer at West Coast Environmental Law where I worked in the Climate Change Program and, in 1996, I was one of seven British Columbians chosen to participate in the BC Legislative Internship Program.

I received my law degree from McGill University in Montreal in 2001. Before that, I obtained an M.A. (Political Science) from the University of Victoria and a B.A. (Political Science) from the University of British Columbia.

I started this site in February 2009 as a means of compiling the labour and employment law articles I had written, presentations I had given and updates I had sent out while I was at Lawson Lundell LLP. My goal at the time was to create an online resume. Hooked on the format, I then started blogging about labour and employment law developments that I had missed in 2007 when my wife and I were on a year-long road trip from Vancouver to the Panama Canal, and back home again. From there, I have continued to use the site as a convenient vehicle to track Canadian (and sometimes US) labour and employment law issues, developments and cases, often backfilling as I go.

I live in Vancouver, British Columbia.
