Human Rights Legislation and Tribunals

Unions can be a complainant or a respondent to a human rights complaint. We can assist with proceedings under both provincial and federal Human Rights legislation. This assistance includes filing complaints, responding to complaints, as well as seeking the dismissal of applications. Where possible and appropriate to do so, we seek to resolve such issues in early-settlement conferences. We can also represent union clients before Human Rights Tribunals, and in the judicial review of Tribunal decisions through the court system.
