Ontario Consultation on Work-Family Balance

Last week, the Ontario Human Rights Commission launched a consultation process with the release of a new discussion paper, Human Rights & the Family in Ontario.

The paper considers the current definition of "family status" in the Ontario Human Rights Code. In the section related to employment issues, the document asks what more can be done by governments and employers to assist workers to balance work and family duties, and raises the issues of duty to accommodate, systemic barriers, negative attitudes and stereotypes, as well as pensions and benefits.

Interested organizations, advocates, researchers and individuals who wish to respond in detail may make written submissions based on issues and questions raised in the Discussion Paper until July 22nd, 2005.
