Is Refusal to Wear a Mask the Basis for a Human Rights Complaint?
Lawson Lundell LLP, April 2021

Mask wearing indoors has become a ubiquitous part of the COVID-19 experience. The B.C. government mandated mask wearing in November of 2020 for most indoor public settings. Those orders are premised on face coverings helping to prevent, respond to or alleviate the spread of COVID-19, when used with other protective measures.

The CRA Has Simplified the Process for Employees to Claim a Tax Deduction for Working from Home Due to COVID-19
Lawson Lundell LLP, March 2021

In 2020, as offices and workplaces across Canada closed or reduced staffing capacity due to COVID-19, many Canadian workers who normally performed work at their employer’s worksite were suddenly required to work from home, either fully or partially.

Of those participants, 41% reported the kind of symptoms consistent with moderate or severe anxiety...

Terminating Employees – 15 Planning Questions an Employer Should Ask Itself
Lawson Lundell LLP, November 2020

Terminating the employment of an employee is never easy. There are many things to consider from both a practical and legal perspective. The more prepared you can be the better. While not exhaustive, set out below are some questions every employer should be asking themselves before they terminate the employment of any non-union employee on a “without cause” basis. What is the reason for termination? Make sure that no part of the reason is based on a prohibited ground under human rights legislation (e.g., age or disability), employment standards legislation (e.g...
