Human Rights, Harassment And Discrimination
The BC Human Rights Code governs the rights and obligations regarding discrimination in the workplace.
Our team of human rights lawyers at Kane Shannon Weiler LLP has extensive experience representing employers and employees 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.
Employees are more aware of their rights to enjoy a workplace free from discrimination and as a result more human rights complaints are being started against employers. It has become increasingly difficult for employers to maintain compliance with the fast evolving law in this area. Our experienced team helps employers navigate and understand the connection between human rights and other workplace issues or principles such as privacy, collective agreements and WorkSafeBC, to be able to achieve their organizational goals while eliminating or reducing risk and liability.
The employment lawyers at Kane Shannon Weiler LLP are also committed to helping employees through the process of understanding human rights complaints and deciding whether to proceed to 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.
