Human Rights for Employees
Many people come to our human rights law firm for consultation on their workplace human rights concerns (i.e. discrimination and/or harassment). Our reputation for sensitivity, high quality customer service and tireless advocacy is second to none.
Why do I need a human rights lawyer?
Workplace human rights lawyers, including those at Dutton Employment law, assist individuals when they have been discriminated against at work or harassed by their employer or an employee of their employee.
Most commonly, workplace human rights lawyers get justice for employees who have been dismissed from work for a discriminatory reason. In this regard, employers may be liable to compensate an employee if the employee was terminated because of race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, record of offences, marital status, family status or disability.
In addition, workplace human rights lawyers get justice for employees who have been discriminated against or harassed, even if they have not left their job. We can assist getting employees accommodated by their employer, getting compensation for injuries to dignity and self worth, and even help employees quit their job and get paid for it, if they so wish.
