We’re pleased to announce that WeirFoulds Partner Megan Mah has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers (FACL). Megan joins WeirFoulds Partner Daniel Wong, who enters the second year of his second term as FACL director and continues as its Vice President, Internal.
FACL is a diverse coalition of Asian Canadian legal professionals who promote equity, justice, and opportunity for Asian Canadian legal professionals, and seeks to bridge the barriers that prevent Asian Canadians and members of other visible minority communities from accessing equal opportunities in the legal profession. The organization fosters advocacy, community involvement, legal scholarship and professional development, and offers a mentoring program for students who are entering law school.
Daniel Wong is the Chair of the Employment & Labour Practice Group, and frequently advises employers on all aspects of employment and labour relations including executive compensation, employee hiring and terminations, employment standards compliance, unfair practice and human rights complaints, employee privacy issues and the development and execution of initiatives and policies. He has been repeatedly recognized by Best Lawyers in Canada as a leading practitioner in employment and labour law.
Megan Mah has a diverse practice that focuses on human rights, employment, civil litigation, administrative and constitutional law, and advises clients on a range of litigation matters, including workplace disputes, discrimination and accommodation, sexual harassment and violence, wrongful and constructive dismissals, breaches of contracts, and professional discipline. She was recently recognized by Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch as a leading early-career lawyer in employment and labour law, and received the FACL Young Lawyer of the Year award in 2021.
We wish both Daniel and Megan well with this important mandate!
