Special Programs in Employment: Criteria for Compliance = Programmes speciaux en matiere d'emploi: Criteres de mise en application.
Canadian Human Rights Commission, Ottawa (Ontario).
The purpose of this publication is to clarify the Canadian Human Rights Commission-approved criteria for special employment programs to eliminate systemic discrimination and to ensure compliance with the Canadian Human Rights Act. The basic principle of the Act is set forth: those sections of the Act that specify discriminatory practices are quoted, and the mandate of the Commission regarding special programs is discussed. In the next four sections, focus is on development of special programs in employment. Topics covered include criteria for special programs, identification of needs (problem areas within the organization in which its labor force is unrepresentative), determination of the relationship between the composition of its existing labor force and elements of its employment system (organizational policies, procedures, and practices), and three essential elements of a special program that will improve opportunities through contributing to a representative labor force (objectives, implementation, and results). An appendix provides four examples of special programs that describe the employer, situation, organizational assessment, and the special program (objective and activites). (A French language version of the material is provided.) (YLB)
