The Retail Action Network (RAN), has been granted leave to intervene in the appeal of a human rights case in the Supreme Court of Canada. RAN is a Victoria-based grass-roots organization that represents and advocates for the rights of vulnerable workers in the Retail, Food Service, and Hospitality Industries. The appeal is from the BC Court of Appeal's decision in Schrenk v. British Columbia (Human Rights Tribunal), and raises issues about the jurisdiction of the BC Human Rights Tribunal to consider complaints of discrimination arising in a workplace setting. RAN is concerned that the Court of Appeal's ruling may result in diminished protection from harassment and discrimination for the most vulnerable workers. The Supreme Court of Canada is scheduled to hear the appeal on March 28, 2017. Catherine Boies Parker and Robin Gage, together with the BC Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) represent RAN in this matter.
