New chair appointed for BC Labour Relations Board and Employment Standards Tribunal
Monday, December 13, 2021 1:00 PM
Jennifer Glougie has been appointed as the new chair of the BC Labour Relations Board and the Employment Standards Tribunal.
The appointment was announced by David Eby, Attorney General, following a merit-based recruitment process.
Glougie holds a law degree from the University of Victoria and a PhD in linguistics from the University of British Columbia. She is a member of the Law Society of British Columbia and the Canadian Bar Association, as well as the Canadian Linguistics Association, the International Association of Forensic Linguists and the International Law and Language Association.
As part of her private practice, Glougie was involved in labour education through the Canadian Labour Congress and various labour councils throughout the province. Glougie has served as associate chair of the BC Labour Relations Board since May 2018.
Glougie will take over as chair from Jacquie de Aguayo, whose term ends Feb. 4, 2022. As a senior official at the Labour Relations Board since 2014 and chair since February 2018, de Aguayo has built respect in both labour and employer communities for her inclusive leadership abilities and her application of the law.
The Labour Relations Board is an independent administrative tribunal with the mandate to mediate and resolve disputes related to unionized workplaces under the Labour Relations Code. The Employment Standards Tribunal conducts hearings of appeals and decisions made by the Employment Standards Branch, which is established under the Employment Standards Act. Combined, these mechanisms provide workers and employers the ability to resolve workplace disputes in a fair and efficient manner.
