18 SINCE YOU VE BEEN GONE: Our BC Labour and Employment Update EARL PHILLIPS CHRISTOPHER MCHARDY
19 1 Since You ve Been Gone: Labour and Employment Update Introduction It will not surprise you to hear that the past year has seen its fair share of labour and employment law developments. Without further ado, we give you our playlist of the notable scores in the 2010 hit parade Human Rights The hottest issue in human rights law family status discrimination is the subject of a separate presentation, but there is still plenty to discuss. THE DUTY TO ACCOMMODATE There are some helpful cases where employees are being held to account, and employers are being allowed some management discretion and flexibility. Employee Preference Two pregnant nurses were assigned to temporary alternative work in logistics that all parties agreed was appropriate accommodation for their medical restrictions. The problem?: they normally worked, and preferred, 12-hour shifts and the shifts in logistics had recently been changed to 8.4 hours. The shift change in logistics was recognized as a legitimate change for operational reasons, and unrelated to the pregnant employees or their accommodation. The union argued that the employer failed in its duty to accommodate by not providing 12-hour shifts. The arbitrator disagreed, holding that it was not unreasonable to require the nurses to work the shift that attached to appropriate work. The arbitrator added: Respecting the dignity of a pregnant employee does not include conferring upon her additional rights not necessary to accommodate her pregnancy where it is the relief from active duty that flows from her pregnant status. 1 Operational Changes While an employee was on disability leave, a small employer made some operational changes and notified the employee that on her return she would have to do some bus driving. The employee returned to work for a 1 City of Ottawa,  O.L.A.A. No. 343 (QL) (Schmidt)
20 2 week doing just her administrative duties, but when the graduated return-to-work plan concluded was finalized and included some bus driving, she quit. The BC Human Rights Tribunal found no connection between the disability and the change in duties. The Tribunal noted that an employer s operational structure is not frozen while a disabled employee is off work. The Tribunal went on to say that if it was wrong in concluding there was no prima facie discrimination, then there was also a bona fide occupational requirement. The employer was frustrated in its accommodation efforts by the employee s refusal to engage in the process: Ms. Williams did not engage in the give and take necessary to develop a workable accommodation for her physical disabilities. 2 Financial Hardship An employee s injuries from a car accident were accommodated by his employer, and the accommodation was continued when the employee was put on an 18-month waiting list for surgery. The accommodation lasted for over one year, when the employer lost its biggest contract. In response, the employer cut its operation to one shift and, as the arbitrator noted, every employee was directly and adversely affected by the cancelled contract. The injured employee s employment was terminated and he grieved. The arbitrator ruled that the costs of accommodation had become of a totally different magnitude and that the hardship originally and willingly assumed by the employer in accommodating [the employee s] disability had become undue hardship. 3 Employee Compliance Employees can also fail to meet their obligations in accommodation when they don t obey the terms of the accommodation. An employee with a shoulder injury failed to observe the lifting restrictions in his light duty assignment and the Tribunal ruled: The nature of the accommodation process is one which requires full and frank dialogue between the parties, as they work together to find a solution that adequately balance the competing interests at play. Mr. Gao did not cooperate in this process. 4 Substance Abuse For employers who are patiently working with employees with substance abuse or addiction disorders, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Your efforts will often result in a happy result of continued recovery and a successful return to work. And, in those tragic cases where the employee does not respond, there is a limit to the employer s duty to accommodate. 2 Williams v.
