Simon published another article on First Reference Blog entitled “Pregnant temporary worker files human rights complaint after termination”. This article explored the issues involved when temporary employees who are hired for short term specific tasks file complaints against the companies that have retained them. In this case, the employer was alleged to have terminated the employee because of her pregnancy raising potential liability for a discriminatory termination based on the prohibited ground of pregnancy.
