Human Rights Issues, despite legislative evolution, are still a prominent issue in the modern workplace. While an employer is required to maintain workplace harassment and violence policies in accordance with “Bill 168”, the actual implementation of such policies is often what is at issue. Even employers with developed human rights and violence/harassment policies are still susceptible to violations of human rights legislation, given the prominence of unidentified or unnoticed discrimination.
It is crucial that employers enforce workplace harassment and violence policies and strive to protect disadvantaged groups. However, success in this regard is not always achieved, which is where an Employment Lawyer comes into play, and a civil claim or human rights complaint is considered. See our articles on human rights issues within the workplace and specifically gender identity.
Many human rights issues now centre around ‘invisible disabilities’ which cause an employer to treat someone differently such as:
-Learning Disabilities such as dyslexia, ADD, ADHD among others;
-Sleep Apnea and other disabilities that affect cognitive reasoning;
-Stress and Anxiety disorders;
-Addiction including alcohol, drug, gambling, and sex addiction among others;
