Subsection 25(2.1) of the Ontario Human Rights Code and related provisions in the Employment Standards Act and its regulations have permitted employers to cut or reduce benefits to workers aged 65 and older without any justification. In Talos v. Grand Erie District School Board, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO) found that the legislative scheme amounts to age discrimination and violates Section 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The decision relates to group health, dental and life insurance benefits.
