November 24, 2014

Halifax partner Lisa Gallivan and associate Alison Strachan have been reprinted by Canadian Employment Law Today for their article, "Rejected Sexual Advance at Work: Cause for retaliation? It's No, Nay, Never!"

Originally published on the HR Law blog November 4, this article discusses unrequited sexual advances in the workplace and the importance of having a sexual harassment policy in place, by outlining the case of Horner and Peelle Company Ltd., 2014 HRTO 112. "Negative consequences, in this case, were found in the chipping away at job duties, communication and interpersonal work relationships creating an uncomfortable and unworkable situation for the employee who was subjected to sexual harassment."
