Gender Identity and Gender Expression in the Workplace (Recording) 

Oct. 27, 2016

Gender Identity
and Gender Expression in the Workplace

Jointly presented by the CBA National Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Community Forum (SOGIC) and the Labour & Employment Law Section. 

In recent years, various jurisdictions across Canada have expressly added “gender identity” and “gender expression” as prohibited grounds of discrimination in their human rights laws. Labour and employment lawyers need to understand the evolving legal landscape related to these grounds to properly advise their employee/union and employer/management clients.

While gender identity and expression rights apply to everyone in the workplace, this webinar will focus on the rights of trans (transgender, two-spirit, non-binary, agender) workers, including the employer’s duty to accommodate. Our expert panel will discuss best practices and provide practical tips to avoid pitfalls and maintain an inclusive and productive workplace for all employees.

Topics will include:

  • Overview of concepts and terms relating to gender identity and expression
  • Case law developments in the areas of human rights law and employment law
  • Guidance for developing appropriate workplace policies
