Simon published another article on First Reference Blog entitled, “Requesting background checks after employment starts”. In this blog post, Simon discusses the recent Ontario Superior Court decision in Covenoho v. Pendylum Inc., 2016 ONSC 4969 which held that it was not unlawful for an employer to request a criminal background check from an employee after employment had already started. The Employee’s refusal to consent to the background check and subsequent termination were upheld by the court. A link to this decision can be found here.
