Pregnancy & Parental Leave

  • Model Policy on Maternity and Parental Leave
    Nova Scotia Lawyers Assistance Program, 2010

    Drafted in 2010 following review of existing policies of Canadian law societies, Bar associations and Nova Scotia firms, corporations and government agencies. This model policy provides sample language for eligibility, terms, procedures and transitional provisions. Organizations are advised to review it carefully and amend or adapt provisions to their circumstances.
  • Guide to Assist Law Firms in Developing Pregnancy and Parental Leave Policies for Associates
    Law Society of Upper Canada, 2009

    Developed in collaboration with firms participating in the LSUC’s Justicia Project, this guide outlines issues for consideration, identifies legal obligations and provides sample policy options, clauses and information about firm practices. While intended as a tool to assist law firms in developing internal policies on pregnancy and parental leave for associates in Ontario, it can be adapted for other jurisdictions and settings.

    Law Society of Upper Canada, 2010

    Law Society of Manitoba, amended 2003

    Drafted in 2000 following review of existing policies of Canadian law societies, Bar associations and Manitoba firms, corporations and government agencies.

Organizations are advised to review it carefully and amend or adapt provisions to their circumstances.
  • Pregnancy and Human Rights In the Workplace: A Guide for Employers
    Canadian Human Rights Commission, 2010

    This guide has three main sections: What is pregnancy-related discrimination?; What is the employer’s duty to accommodate?; and Best practices to avoid pregnancy-related discrimination. The best practices cover all stages of pregnancy, from hiring to the employee’s return from pregnancy-related leave. Though written in the context of federally regulated employers under the Canadian Human Rights Act, the definitions and best practices are broadly applicable.
