Human Rights and Compliance
At Vey Willetts LLP we understand that as human rights law continues to evolve, compliance can pose significant challenges. We are well-positioned to help you navigate these challenges and ensure a legally-compliant and productive workplace.
In Ontario, employers are required by human rights law to provide a workplace free from harassment and to reasonably accommodate the needs of employees that exhibit one of a list of protected characteristics, including: physical disability, mental disability, religion and sex.
There are three factors that contribute to successful accommodation and a harassment-free workplace: a clear understanding of the applicable legal framework; fostering an inclusive and respectful work environment; and clear and fairly-applied workplace human rights policy.
