Susan Parcels’ case achieves rights to maternity benefits
Susan Parcels’ Human Rights case, supported by the United Nurses of Alberta, achieved entitlement to maternity benefits in Alberta. The case was decided by an Alberta human rights Board of Inquiry, and then, in 1992, on appeal by the Alberta Hospital Association, at the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench. The decisions adopted the basic principles for entitlement to benefits during pregnancy and maternity.
