Canadian employers, service-providers and educators are subject to a complex body of human rights laws and policies. It is essential that organizations seek the counsel of specialized human rights experts to ensure they are informed of their rights and responsibilities and act in accordance with them.
WeirFoulds advises and represents public and private sector clients on a wide range of human rights matters. We assist organizations with employment-related issues, such as negotiating pay equity plans, accommodating employee disability and family status claims, and promoting inclusive workplaces. We advise public sector organizations on compliance with human rights and employment equity legislation, and on the proper provision of health, educational and other public services. We also represent clients in mediations and before human rights commissions and tribunals. Our partner Raj Anand is the former Chief Commissioner of the Ontario Human Rights Commission.
