Employment Laws for HR, Part 1: Unintentional Discrimination

Region: Canada
Date: Tuesday, October 3, 2017
Time: 2 p.m. EST | 11 a.m. PST

Presenters: Mark Sward CIPM CIPP/C CIPP/E, Director of Privacy, Sterling Talent Solutions

Some types of discrimination are obvious, like refusing to hire people of a certain ethnicity or making derogatory comments about an employee’s religion. Others are subtler and can catch a well-intended and seemingly well-prepared employer by surprise. Different dress codes for men and women, or social media posts highlighting the youthfulness of your current (and desired) employees are great examples of practices which may require special consideration.

Join this webinar to hear about specific cases in Canada where an employer engaged in an activity that seemed fine…at the time but resulted in a human rights complaint. You’ll learn:

  • Which types of activities can lead to unintentional discrimination
  • How to determine whether an activity that adversely affects a protected group may be acceptable
  • How to handle employee complaints about perceived discrimination
