“Do you have job security while on maternity leave?” by Jared Lindzon, Globe and Mail.

The Globe and Mail quotes Toronto lawyer Karen Sargeant in an article on job security during maternity leave.

“A lot can happen in a business in a year, so we need to have an exception like this to deal with business realities,” said Karen Sargeant, a partner in Fasken Martineau’s Labour, Employment and Human Rights Group. “If the business changed while they were off, they should be treated the same way they would have had they not been off. They shouldn’t get any extra protections that the person sitting next to them didn’t get just because they’re on leave.”
