Your business has a legal obligation to provide a work environment free from harassment and discrimination. Your organization must provide equal opportunities to its employees. Understanding and effectively addressing human rights complaints is crucial for employers in Ontario. At Achkar Law, we provide tailored legal services to employers facing human rights claims.
What are Human Rights Complaints?
These grounds include:
- Ancestry, colour, race.
- Ethnic origin.
- Place of origin.
- Family status.
- Marital status.
- Gender identity, gender expression.
- Sexual orientation.
Your employees may allege discrimination and/or harassment on one of the protected grounds by filing an application with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario or a complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission. Experienced litigation lawyers can help you respond to claims of violations and put forward a strong defence on your behalf. Human rights lawyers can help limit your business’ exposure to liability, and advise you of your options and risks.
Both the Ontario Human Rights Code and the Canadian Human Rights Act protections extend to various areas, such as employment, housing, contracts, and the provision of goods and services.
How to Respond and Defend Against a Human Rights Complaint
When your business is named as a respondent in a human rights claim, it is crucial to respond promptly and effectively. Failing to do so can result in liability for damages and negative exposure for your business. Your response should address the allegations, present your version of the facts, and provide a strong legal defence.
