The objective of this project is to describe and analyze the Human Rights Codes and caselaw pertaining to situations related to caring for adult family/friends across different regions of Canada in the last 30 years. This research projects draws on content analysis to review pertinent jurisdictional, provincial, and federal Human Rights Codes and caselaw related to family status in Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta. Data will be analyzed by demographic and workplace variables, caselaw decisions, and level of compliance by respondents/employers. This research will provide important knowledge on Human Rights Codes and caselaw trends, types of awards and orders granted, and the responsiveness of employers to accommodate careing over time and space.
