    In 1975, the right to equality without discrimination based on gender was enshrined in the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms. In order to strengthen the principle of equality of women and men, this principle was enshrined in the Preamble to the online baccarat malaysia Charter in 2008. The Preamble explains the goal and scope of the Charter; in other words, it affirms that gender equality is a fundamental value of m88 Québec society.

    Furthermore, in 2008 a section was added to the Charter, section 50.1, which says that the rights and freedoms set forth in the Charter are guaranteed equally to women and men.

    This means that the right to equality of women and men must be taken into account in analyzing a legal question or when a human freedom or right is at stake.

    Reasonable accommodation

    In legal language, the duty to accommodate is said to be a "natural corollary" of the right to equality guaranteed under the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms. This legal obligation is a means of putting an end to a situation of discrimination based on gender, disability, religion, sex or any other ground prohibited under section 10 of the Charter. The obligation to accommodate applies in all situations of prohibited discrimination.

    Clear guidelines already exist, that is to say, criteria for evaluating whether accommodation is reasonable or if there is undue hardship that would prevent an employer or a service provider from granting accommodation.

    This evaluation is based on the following criteria, developed by the courts over the course of w88 years:

    · The cost of the accommodation requested;

    · Its impact on the rights of others;

    · Its impact on the proper operation of an organization or business;

    · Its impact on the level of security to maintain within the organization or business.
