Human Rights

We have experience advising employers on human rights issues related to hiring, disability, accommodation, discrimination, harassment, discipline and termination. We have extensive experience in dealing with all manner of alleged discrimination and/or harassment on the basis of all prohibited grounds, including disability, race, ethnicity, place of origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation and family status.

We provide prompt advice on human rights issues that arise in the workplace, drafting policies, conducting investigations, and helping to determine appropriate remedies, which sometimes include discipline or termination. In addition to our significant experience in the investigation, mediation and adjudication of internal discrimination and harassment complaints, our lawyers have experience representing clients before the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal in defence of complaints of discrimination and/or harassment in the workplace.
