universality of service principle
"Survival of the Fittest: The Failure to Accommodate and Compensate in the Canadian Armed Forces" 20:2 Canadian Labour & Employment Law Journal 3Print, 79
The article discusses how the Canadian Armed Forces are exempt by the Canadian Human Rights Code, based on the principle of universality of service, from having to accommodate disabled members, there for being able to terminate them based on medical reasons. This means the Forces are allowed to engage in prima facia discrimination. The universality of service principal is a bona fide occupational requirement. The article argues that the universality principle is not reasonably necessary.
