Canada’s Constitution outlines certain human rights such as freedom of speech and freedom of religion. The Human Rights Code of Ontario joins with it to protect employees against discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, disability and other factors. At PACE LAW, we understand that respecting these rights is essential to operating a successful business. However, the laws also mean that employers must take great care in their recruiting, hiring, contracting, terminating and other employment areas, to avoid human rights claims and costly litigation.
If you are an employee who believes your rights have been trampled on, we can help you determine if you have a valid human rights claim and provide you with strong legal support when filing a claim. Our lawyers also defend employers against allegations of discrimination and identify ways to mitigate the consequences of human rights claims.
A Workplace Free of Discrimination
Among their various rights, employees have the right to a work environment free of discrimination, and they have the right to take action if they feel they have been discriminated against. Employers and employees who have concerns about human rights-related issues can turn to PACE LAW for trusted advice and effective solutions. We help employers take the precautions necessary to create workplaces free of discrimination, thus minimizing the risk of human rights claims and ensuring positive work environments for all employees.
We understand that discrimination is rarely overt and, more often than not, it is subtly built into the system. Our lawyers provide careful analyses of employment practices to root out systemic discrimination.
