In episode 6 of the Canadian Employment and Labour Law podcast, our host Alison Walsh is joined by Cristina Wendel to discuss employers’ family status accommodation obligations under human rights legislation.
Covering topics such as:
- Do employers have to accommodate an employee because they have chosen to enroll their child in online schooling?
- What is the employers legal duty if an employee’s child cannot attend school?
- Is an employer obligated to pay an employee while they are on a leave of absence?
Christina and Alison also give an overview of the issues that can potentially trigger an employer’s duty to accommodate in the context of family status.
