    CCEL’s Director Krista James will be speaking on Thursday April 20 at the Human Rights and Accommodation Conference at the Lancaster House in Vancouver.

    Krista will be part of a panel held between 3 pm and 4:15 pm on the theme of “Changing families, changing rules: The latest cases and best practices on adjusting work schedules and other accommodations.

    For many Canadian workers, protection against family status discrimination is crucial in balancing work and family care obligations. Despite the importance of this issue for employers, unions and employees, there remains significant uncertainty and conflicting jurisprudence regarding the nature and extent of employers’ duty to accommodate family care obligations. Shifting demographic trends and the increasing prevalence of “non-traditional” family models in Canada raise additional questions about the scope of family status accommodation requirements.The panel of Lancaster’s experts will have an in-depth discussion on this rapidly evolving area of law.

    Other panel members include Michael Wagner, Employer Counsel, Roper Greyell, and Jodie Gauthier, Union Counsel, Koskie Glavin Gordon.
