The Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC) has filed an injunction against the Federal Court of Canada that would hinder Canada’s new background screening system. The newly enacted system includes fingerprinting, credit checks, and internet profiling for all civil servants in Canada. PIPSC states that the background checks are an “unreasonable, unnecessary, and unjustified” invasion of privacy for the 35,000 people that they represent. The injunction states that the screening is in violation of the Privacy Act, is unconstitutional, and violates section seven of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. They are also grieving that they were not consulted before the system was standardized and passed. They are worried that the information obtained will be used by hiring managers to determine if an applicant is the “best fit” when they should be looking at the “best qualified” person.
