Helping clients in Guelph, Kitchener, and Waterloo navigate unfair or unwanted treatment in the workplace.
You have a legal right to a safe workplace
The Ontario Human Rights Code prohibits discrimination and harassment based on race, colour, ethnic origin, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, and family status. If you feel that your rights under the Human Rights Code have been violated, I will work to ensure that every possible avenue for justice is pursued.
I have served clients across Ontario in many areas of employment for over two decades. When you work with me, you will speak directly to me. I won’t hand off your case to anyone else. I am dedicated to providing you with the compassionate care, attentive service, and efficient resolution of legal issues that you deserve.
Non-Human Rights Code workplace harassment and bullying
Harassment, bullying, and discrimination can take many forms. This is why it’s important to receive professional counsel on how to handle such issues.
In addition to the description of harassment as set out in the Human Rights Code, harassment can also include:
- Unwanted contact
- Sexual harassment
- Verbal abuse
- Digital harassment
Any of these actions are a legitimate reason to reach out to me for a conversation.
Making your case
There are a number of ways that you can help build a case against your harasser. Strategies include:
- Keep chronological notes of events.
- Solicit witness testimonies.
- Get testimonies of other victims of the harassment, bullying, or discrimination.
- Keep text, email, or photographic proof of harassment.
Harassment and discrimination cases are not to be taken lightly. Employing the strategies above will help me build a case in your favour, so you no longer have to work in a hostile work environment.
