Human Rights Cases
You have the right to be free from discrimination and harassment in your job, facilities and services (shops, restaurants, transit, hospitals, schools and other public places), housing, contracts, and membership in unions or vocational associations. If employees feel that their employers fail to accommodate their needs as per the protected ground, or their employers have punished them for exercising their human rights, give us a call. Human Rights prohibits actions that discriminate against people based on a protected ground in a protected social area.
Protected grounds are:
- Ancestry, Colour, race
- Ethnic origin
- Place of origin
- Family status
- Marital status (including single status)
- Gender identity, gender expression
- Receipt of public assistance (in housing only)
- Record of offences (in employment only)
- Sex (including pregnancy and breastfeeding)
- Sexual orientation.
Protected social areas are:
- Accommodation (housing)
- Goods, services and facilities
- Membership in unions, trade or professional associations.
If you have been terminated but you do not believe it was due to your performance or behavior, you may be entitled to more than what the law says your employers owe you.
If you resigned as a result of your employers having made the workplace environment poisonous, you may also be owed more than what the law says the employers owe you.
