The PSAC recently filed a human rights complaint against the CSC, alleging that they violated articles 7 and 10 of the Canadian Human Rights Act when they instituted an attendance management program, which discriminates against employees on the grounds of family status, disability and sex.
The complaint outlines how, in October 2011, the CSC implemented the National Attendance Management Program (NAMP) to address the absenteeism in the workplace.
The HR complaint is focussing on:
- how the NAMP discriminates against employees on the grounds of family status, disability and sex;
- the use of Family and Sick leave towards admission into the NAMP;
- the establishement of the level of absences based on peer-group averages;
- and more.
