Is there any case law where a distinction was drawn between whether and what extent of work has been performed?

Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

The following excerpt is from Power v. Canada (Attorney General Of), 2003 NLCA 17 (CanLII):

Absent the question of accommodation by the employer, which is not at issue in this case, equality principles are not engaged where a distinction is drawn between employees based on whether and to what extent work has been performed. (See: Ontario Nurses’ Association v. Orillia Soldiers Memorial Hospital, supra, at paragraphs 54 to 57; Real Canadian Superstore v. United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 1400, supra, at paragraph 56.)
