ICBC dismissed staff on mat leave

ICBC must explain dismissing staffer on mat leave

ICBC has some explaining to do about why it dismissed a woman on maternity leave and couldn’t find her another position out of several posted that she was qualified for, according to the BC Human Rights Tribunal.

Delia Carr was hired by ICBC as a confidential administrative assistant to a director in 2008. In 2012, she started her 14-month leave and was scheduled to return in early July 2013.

During her leave, ICBC informed her that her job was terminated effective of her return date from mat leave, claiming they couldn’t find a “comparable position for her.”

“ICBC indicates that it continued to search for a comparable position and placed her on salary continuance until early November 2013,” a tribunal document states.

In Carr’s agreement, it outlines how her employment could be terminated by ICBC without cause.

In 2012, ICBC was the subject of a highly publicized review, where it was recommended that it reduce its management and confidential staffing levels back to 2008 numbers — so it did just that by reducing its workforce by 250 positions.

“Numerous individuals were transferred or changed roles as duties were reassigned,” the document states.

The director she worked with was promoted to a vice-president position, which is supported again by an administrative assistant.

ICBC maintains that if Carr had not been on maternity leave, her employment still would have been terminated.

However, Carr claims if she wasn’t on mat leave when the ICBC reorganization occurred, she would not have been terminated and she would have been able to move up with the VP, or had another spot found for her.

Carr said there were 21 administrative assistant positions filled, and she was qualified to fill six posted ones.

While tribunal member Catherine McCreary agreed with ICBC on some regards, there were a number of positions she was eligible for “with the distinguishing feature being that she was on maternity leave.”

McCreary ordered a hearing so ICBC can better articulate why Carr was not given one of the posted positions she was fully qualified for.
