Human Rights, Harassment And Discrimination

The Human Rights Code in British Columbia protects the rights of employees from discriminatory behaviour in the workplace. Employers have a duty to accommodate, which means that they must take the necessary steps to ensure equal treatment.

The team of human rights lawyers and discrimination lawyers at Kane Shannon Weiler LLP have extensive experience representing clients in human rights, harassment, and discrimination cases across a range of industries. We recognize the difficult nature of these areas and endeavour to make the process as stress-free and uncomplicated as possible.

Defending Your Right To A Non-Discriminatory Workplace

As an employee, you have the right to enjoy a workplace free from discrimination. Employers cannot discriminate against employees based on personal characteristics including:

  • Age
  • Ancestry
  • Colour
  • Criminal conviction
  • Family status
  • Gender identity or expression
  • Marital status
  • Mental disability
  • Physical disability
  • Place of origin
  • Political beliefs
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation

The employment lawyers at Kane Shannon Weiler LLP are committed to helping clients through the process of understanding human rights complaints and deciding whether to proceed with filing with the Human Rights Tribunal.

We recognize that each human rights, discrimination, and harassment case is unique and are dedicated to taking a thorough approach in working towards a resolution.
