Simran Bakshi on Employment Law: What are my rights if I’m being discriminated against in my work place?

Human Rights legislation both in Ontario and nationally protects against discrimination in the workplace on various grounds. This includes age, disability, racial, ethnic, and religious right, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, and more.

Your employer is obligated at law to ensure that the workplace is free from any such discrimination. You can claim compensation that you have been discriminated against at the Ontario Human Rights tribunal, or in the case of federally regulated employees at the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal and also at the court. The good news for employees is that you have protection and you should speak with a lawyer to learn more.
