In a recent decision, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (the Tribunal) questioned the value of various past case laws that have introduced and applied different tests for family status discrimination, including the Johnstone test. More specifically, the Tribunal disapproved of the existence of distinct “tests” for establishing family status discrimination.
Q: We have an employee who is an architect and is requiring pay in lieu of vacation. According to the Ontario Employment Standards Act, I understand we should avoid doing so. But, I see that Regulation 285/01 includes: “Exemptions from Parts VII to XI of Act 2. (1) Parts VII, VIII, IX, X and XI of the Act do not apply to a person employed, (a) as a duly qualified practitioner of, (i) architecture”. Does this mean that the vacation obligation of two weeks doesn’t apply to this professional?
