Human Rights in Canada
In Canada, we have the Human Rights Code, the Canadian Human Rights Act, and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. These documents, besides the employment contract, protect employees and others from discrimination including color, race, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, citizenship, age, religion, or other discrimination grounds.
Unfortunately, discrimination issues often occur and might prompt an employee to pursue legal action. These discriminations issues can be a distinction to the personal characteristics which have the effect of imposing obligations, or disadvantages upon others, or which withholds or limits access to opportunities, benefits, and advantages available to a group.
Making a discrimination claim or a claim of a human rights violation is a concerning issue and involves a complex emotional aspect of the people involved.
