Human rights issues in the workplace are often super-charged with emotion – and rightly so. Human rights go to the very core of our dignity as individuals. Human rights laws protect individuals across Canada from discrimination on prohibited grounds such as disability, sex, sexual orientation, and race.
Our lawyers have represented clients at human rights tribunals in BC, Alberta, Ontario, and at the Federal Commission and Tribunal. We have also represented clients in court at judicial reviews of human rights cases.
