About this course

In Render v. ThyssenKrupp Elevator (Canada) Limited, 2022 ONCA 310 (CanLII), a decision from the Ontario Court of Appeal in April of this year, a single act of sexual touching was held to justify a termination of employment for cause of an employee with 30 years of service. Writing for the Court, Justice Feldman stated that, “Every workplace should be based on mutual respect among co-workers. An atmosphere of mutual respect will naturally generate the boundaries of behaviour that should not be crossed.” 

Join Janice Rubin and Katharine Montpetit as they discuss whether this case is a “game changer” and how the case law dealing with workplace sexual harassment and sexual violence is evolving. This evolution includes new evidentiary issues to be considered, a re-examination of what acquiescence to problematic behaviour really means, and a deeper understanding of how sexual harassment and sexual violence impacts on individuals in the workplace.
