OVERVIEW & EXPERTISE

 

Canadian employers must establish policies and procedures to prevent discrimination and understand their obligation to accommodate differences and disabilities. The Blakes Human Rights & Accommodation  group possesses expertise in all types of workplace matters, with specialized knowledge and experience handling human rights, accommodation, and employment and pay equity matters.

Recognizing that proactive risk management is far more cost-effective than resolving problems after they arise, domestic businesses as well as foreign businesses with operations in Canada frequently seek our guidance on developing, implementing and enforcing corporate policies, risk avoidance strategies and educational training for managers and employees. They also engage our team to advise on the rules regarding accommodation of persons with disabilities, chronic absenteeism and other situations that raise human rights issues.

In addition to advising clients when responding to allegations of human rights and other legal violations, we represent them in legal proceedings as well as assist with conducting internal investigations. We regularly prepare responses to human rights complaints and appear before mediators and human rights boards of inquiry and tribunals on behalf of clients.

The Human Rights & Accommodation group also provides advice to clients on pay equity and employment equity legislation. Our lawyers appear regularly before human rights tribunals throughout Canada.
