Stephanie acts for a broad range of clients, both provincial and federal, in the public and private sectors. She advocates on behalf of clients and provides strategic advice on all aspects of workplace law, including human rights.

Stephanie regularly represents clients at arbitration, before the BC Labour Relations Board and the BC Human Rights Tribunal. Her advocacy brings her before the British Columbia Courts (both levels) and various federal tribunals. She is frequently asked to conduct bullying/harassment investigations.

Stephanie is highly effective on her feet. She is a persuasive advocate for her clients, adept at drilling down to identify a case’s winning argument, which has resulted in an impressive track record of successful outcomes. Stephanie is also a skillful negotiator and creative problem solver. A categorical people person, Stephanie’s clients know her to be collaborative, attentive, and emotionally intelligent.

Stephanie started her labour and employment law career at Taylor Jordan Chafetz (TJC) in 2001, becoming a partner in January 2008. Together with her colleagues from TJC, Stephanie joined Harris in December 2014.
