If so, call Whitten & Lublin, Employment and Labour Lawyers – Toronto’s leading workplace discrimination lawyers in Toronto.
In Toronto it is required by law to be a free of workplace discrimination, harassment and reprisal. This means that every employee regardless of their gender, ancestry, colour, ethnic origin, creed, sexual orientation, race, place of origin, citizenship, age, gender identity or expression, family or marital status, disability or record of offences should not experience any form of workplace discrimination, sexual harassment or abuse by their employer or colleagues. In fact, employers are obligated to protect their employees under Ontario’s Human Rights Code and they are legally required to investigate workplace discrimination complaints when allegations are made.
The notion of a workplace discrimination and harassment free workplace in Toronto it seems easy and reasonable to adhere too and yet a considerable number of our clients have experienced discrimination during the course of their employment. This can take the form of subtle discrimination, such as not being offered a promotion, or performance managed, to more direct forms of discrimination, such as being forced to retire, or terminated after disclosing a pregnancy or illness. Often times, discriminatory behaviours will only stop when an employee takes legal action.
