Workshop

This webinar will focus on updating and clarifying issues of Anti-Black Racism and systemic discrimination, with an emphasis on how adjudicators assess claims of racial and systemic discrimination, both broadly and in the school board setting.

Webinar

Allegations of systemic discrimination in the workplace, and in the service industry, are becoming increasingly common—and no less complex. Allegations of this nature frequently span a lengthy period of time, involve multiple individuals and engage a number of different grounds protected by the Ontario Human Rights Code.

Workshop

Requests for accommodation based on an individual’s religious beliefs, gender identity and/or gender expression can present unique challenges. How you respond to these types of requests can mean the difference between a finding that suitable accommodations were offered and one that exposes your organization to significant liability. Join us for a webinar that addresses the legal obligations and best practices to keep in mind as it relates to religious accommodation, gender identity and gender expression.

Workshop

There’s no such thing as “textbook” accommodation. Whether your employee has a challenging physical or mental disability that impacts their ability to do the job, childcare problems that interfere with their performance, faith-related obligations or is in the process of transitioning, how you respond to that individual’s request – or don’t – can mean significant liability for your organization. Are you prepared?

Webinar

Given social services agencies’ mandates, employees are constantly interacting with the public and others members of the community in delivering services, support and programs. With service-based human rights tribunal applications becoming more and more common, it is increasingly necessary that organizations in this sector be able to quickly respond to such complaints should they occur – and ideally prevent claims from arising in the first place.

Conference / Seminar

Change is a constant in the human resources world, particularly for Ontario’s school boards. Ongoing developments in the law, whether through new legislation, arbitrations or the courts, and the rapid evolution of best practices create a fast-paced learning environment for human resources professionals, directors of education, supervisory officers and trustees.
