Human Rights Law: Lawyers for Unions and Employees

Morrison Watts Hurtado & Buchner specializes in representing employees who have experienced human rights violations in the workplace contrary to the Ontario Human Rights Code or the Canadian Human Rights Act.

This includes discrimination by employers that may occur during hiring, promotion or termination, or any other time that employees are treated differently because of one or more of the following prohibited grounds of discrimination:

  • Race
  • Ethnic origin
  • Citizenship
  • Disability
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Pregnancy
  • Sexual orientation
  • Age
  • Family or marital status

Our lawyers regularly represent employees with disabilities who experience discrimination in the workplace when they require medical leaves of absence or request accommodations of their disabilities from their employer. We also act on behalf of employees who are subjected to sexual harassment by their supervisors or colleagues at work.

We are dedicated to working with our clients to address human rights violations in the workplace in ways that respond to their specific needs and goals.
