Update #4: Treasury Board's New Reliability Screening Policy
On July 8, 2015, the Federal Court heard the Institute’s motion for an interlocutory injunction seeking to prevent the Treasury Board from implementing its new Standard on Security Screening. The Institute argued that the employer should be precluded from applying its new policy on the basis that its privacy-invasive measures will cause irreparable harm to employees. The honourable Justice Kane heard arguments from both counsel for PIPSC and the employer in a full-day hearing. As is customary, she has reserved her decision. We will post the decision as soon as it is delivered.
