PM #40065782 Labour Reporter Canadian February 18, 2019 Teacher alleges prejudice due to pregnancy leave AFTER SHE returned from 52 weeks of pregnancy and parental leave, a teacher was surprised to learn that she wouldn't receive sick-leave credits for the year off. Lisa Mahon was a full-time teacher at the Golden Avenue Public School in South Porcu- pine, Ont., who went on leave from Aug. 17, 2015, to Aug. 17, 2016. When she returned to work in September 2016, Mahon was given 11 sick days for the 2016, 2017 academic year. Harassment from coworker ignored, alleges Nova Scotia seniors' home worker A DIETARY aide, who worked at the Whitehills Long Term Care in Hammonds Plains, N.S., said the employer disregarded her concerns of ongoing mistreatment from a fellow worker. Joanne Ford had worked at the seniors' home since 2013, and shortly after she started, Ford said she received a phone call from Helen Paris, con- tinuing care assistant (CCA), who was at home. Paris told Ford that she wanted to kiss her first before another CCA could. Ford, who is gay, testified this made her upset and she immediately hung up. Later, Paris apolo- gized and Ford told her not to do so again. Ford also reported the incident to her supervisor. On April 15, 2016, Ford filled out a mistreat- ment/harassment form identifying Paris as the source of harassment: "This has been going on for a continual basis. She is watching me at every- thing I do and runs to management. I feel I have to be on guard at all times and (it) is very stressful."
