Field Law's Workplace Human Rights Group has a broad range of experience advising employers and employees alike on all matters relating to compliance with federal and provincial human rights legislation. In addition to providing representation before commissions, tribunals and Courts in response to allegations of discrimination, our lawyers work proactively with employers to enable legislative compliance through the development and implementation of rights-sensitive policies and procedures and the provision of workplace-specific in-house training programs and seminars. We also regularly assist employers with the investigation of allegations of harassment and other human rights violations in the workplace.

We know that the landscape of human rights law in Canada is shifting. In order to help employers respond to changes in the law, we closely monitor developments in evolving areas such as substance abuse and testing in the workplace and the duty to accommodate, and provide regular updates to clients via email or through our quarterly newsletter, "Workwise".
