Kemess Mines Ltd. v. International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 115, 2006 BCCA 58 and, Health Employers Assn. of B.C. (Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital) v. B.C. Nurses’ Union, 2006 BCCA 57, two recent BC Court of Appeal decisons, have been denied leave to appeal at the Supreme Court of Canada. The cases cover such important areas including hybrid disciplinary matters, perceived disability, accommodation for drug addiction and undue hardship and safety sensitive positions. The cases are a must read for anyone practising in this area.
