Classic Rock Song Sums Up Law in Family Status Complaint

Written by Daniel Standing LL.B., Editor, published by First Reference

The Rolling Stones’ 1969 song aYou Can’t Always Get What You Wanta nicely highlights the difference between a preference and a requirement. This distinction also plays a critical role in the outcome of a family status discrimination claim in which a municipal employee’s request for altered hours arose out of and was ultimately defeated by choices she made.

In his decision, 2022 CanLII 51865, Ontario labour arbitrator Brian Sheehan traces the evolution of family status jurisprudence, and concludes that while an employee’s self-accommodation efforts are relevant, they . . . [more]

System Change: The Dance Between Planning and Action

Chris Corriganas recent blog post is entitled aWe grow through what we go througha. It is a fascinating reminder that learning about change is not enough to result in transformative changes in how we think and behave, especially in emergent, complex and dynamic environments (think justice system for example). Instead, he says:

If I want to learn to think differently I need to put myself in situations where the constraints afford me different possibilities to act differently.

For those of us working at larger firms, at any given time, our clients can also include Human Resources, IT, Knowledge Management, Finance, and so on.

Social Host Liability: Establishing a Duty of Care

Social host liability is an area of law that is still being established. So far the courts are reluctant to find a prima facie duty of care. Without establishing a duty of care, negligence cannot be proven and damages cannot be awarded.

InA McCormick v. Plambeck, 2022 BCCA 219, the BC Court of Appeal upheld the trial judge’s decision. The trial judge found that the plaintiff had not established a duty of care on the social hosts. It was not reasonably foreseeable that the plaintiff who arrived on foot and left on foot, would be injured as a passenger by . . . [more]

UK Blows Its Nose in Europeas General Direction

On 13 June 2022 the UK government introduced a Bill that will authorize it to unilaterally re-write key terms of the Northern Ireland Protocol (“Protocol“) which is part of the Withdrawal Agreement it made with the EU on Brexit, less than 3 years ago.

Although trade intricacies between Northern Ireland and the rest of Britain may not be high on our priorities here in Canada, the fact that this Bill has been introduced at all should be of concern to those who believe in commitment to international law.

Let me explain why I say this.

Can Discovery Evidence Be Used in a Criminal Case, More Guidance From R v JJ, 2022 SCC 28

Four years ago, I wrote about the use of discovery evidence in criminal matters (linked: here).

JJ, 2022 SCC 28, Justice Wagner and Justice Moldaver writing for the Majority upheld sectionsA 278.92 to 278.94 of the Criminal Code, excerpted in part below.

But what is it?

…It is now recognized. But it is not quite accepted. It fits no antique mould. Not knowing just what it includes, the legal profession has never felt quite at ease with it nor quite known how to handle it.

Albert Abel, aThe Dramatis Personae of Administrative Lawa, 1972

Should There Be a Different Code of Conduct for Family Lawyers?

In November 2021, the Child and Youth Law section, the Family Law section, and the Ethics and Professional Responsibility Subcommittee of the Canadian Bar Association (aCBAa) submitted a proposal for two amendments to the Model Code of Professional Conduct to the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. The CBA recommended that the Model Code include a section for non-adversarial advocacy as well as distinct standards for the practice of family law. To be sure, there are unique qualities to family law, but the question is whether family law is so different that distinct professional rules are required for lawyers. In . . . [more]

LTD Rejection and Flawed Medical Note Not Grounds to Deny Employee Disability

In a recent case, the employer dismissed the employee when she did not return to the workplace following an allegedly unauthorized medical absence. However, the employer had improperly denied the fact that the employer’s medical absence was tied to her suffering from an adjustment disorder with associated anxiety and depression, a disability that had been diagnosed by a medical professional. As a result, the labour arbitrator in the case found that the employer had unjustly dismissed the employee by discriminating against her disability. The arbitrator ordered the employee to be reinstated to her position, and to be compensated for the . . . [more]
