About the speaker 

Colin R. Fetter, employment and labour practice leader at Brownlee LLP Colin Fetter was drawn to the legal profession by his love of advocacy. Since as early as grade four, Colin has loved to take up a cause or an argument and advocate for his side. Constantly looking for the ideal way of approaching an argument or a problem to guarantee, or at least maximize, the end result. Now as a Partner at Brownlee, and the Leader of the firm’s Employment and Labour Practice Group, Colin relishes and takes pride in tackling employers’ often complex and highly inflammatory employee problems, usually providing solutions and practical advice during the first phone call. Colin chose many years ago to proactively speak to his clients and to employer groups across Western Canada, about key proactive steps that every employer should be taking to reduce employee disputes and the cost of resolving the ones that do arise. Colin continues this practice to date and has become an indispensable part of many employers’ human resource management teams.
