Set­back for re­jected babysit­ter’s hu­man rights com­plaints

Edmonton Sun - - NEWS - - The Cana­dian Press

An Ed­mon­ton man’s hu­man rights com­plaints against par­ents who re­jected him as a babysit­ter have hit a set­back.

The north­ern di­rec­tor of the Al­berta Hu­man Rights Com­mis­sion says there’s no rea­son­able ba­sis to pro­ceed with James Cyrynowski’s com­plaints.

One com­plaint al­leges a mother dis­crim­i­nated against the man based on fam­ily sta­tus when she hired some­one else to watch her kids.

An­other claims a sin­gle fa­ther dis­crim­i­nated based on age and gen­der when the job was can­celled.

The Jus­tice Cen­tre for Con­sti­tu­tional Free­doms, a le­gal ad­vo­cacy group, is rep­re­sent­ing both par­ents and linked the com­mis­sion’s let­ters in a news re­lease.

It’s now up to the di­rec­tor of the hu­man rights com­mis­sion to de­cide whether the com­plaints go ahead.
