OMHRA Winter 2020 ECHO Newsletter Features Articles Authored by Hicks Morley Lawyers
The Winter 2020 issue of OMHRA’s ECHO newsletter features two articles authored by Hicks Morley lawyers.
In the article “The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario Highlights the Requirement for Co-operation in the Accommodation Process,” Amanda Cohen and Jessica Toldo discuss a recent decision of the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal that provides support for the proposition that there may be recourse to termination where an employee refuses to co-operate in providing medical documentation to substantiate an absence from the workplace.
In the article, “Cybersecurity Risks to Municipalities: A Primer on Ransomware,” Daniel Michaluk and Matin Fazelpour review how municipalities are becoming more attractive targets for ransomware attacks as they operate a number of services (such as processing permits or issuing tickets) for which they accumulate valuable data that can be resold. Dan and Matin also provide tips on how municipalities can prepare to respond in the event of a cybersecurity incident.
