Hicks Morley’s Accommodation Training Workshop Featured in The Lawyer’s Daily
The Lawyer’s Daily has featured Hicks Morley’s Accommodation Training Workshop program in an article published on February 13, 2019.
Stephanie Ramsay, a lawyer and co-presenter for the Accommodation Training Workshop stated, “One of the top items on the agenda [of our training session] will be gender identity — an area of uncharted waters for some employers […] Certainly, the accommodation of gender identity and gender expression is a hot button issue simply because it’s new territory for some employees.”
“The grounds for accommodation have been in the Human Rights Code for some time, but they are certainly in the news more. They are increasingly at the forefront of discussions we’re having […] and employers are going to be considering their washroom facilities, change rooms.” Gender identity is “not something that everyone has education around and has sensitivity around, and there is not only an educational component for the organization itself but also towards other employees,” Stephanie added.
