Employer Accommodation of Family Status in the Workplace

October 30th, 2013 by

In this video, Toronto employment lawyer Flora Poon is speaking about accommodation of family status in the workplace at the Devry Smith Frank LLP exclusive human resource seminar at the Toronto Don Valley Hotels and Suites this fall.

Flora Poon is an established employment lawyer at Devry Smith Frank LLP.

What is family status? The Ontario Human Rights Code states that family status is the status of being in a parent and child relationship. The case law has expanded this, stating that it is not just a parent/child relationship, but that it can go beyond that, including adoption and caregiver ties.

Flora Poon goes into detail, explaining the principle behind accommodation of family status in the workplace and the responsibility of employer and employee in these circumstances.
