If you've been a victim of discrimination, you may be wondering what to do next.
KSW Lawyers can help. We have a team of dedicated human rights lawyers who can help you take action against your employer, landlord, or other individuals who have discriminated against you and violated your rights under the British Columbia Human Rights Code and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. We understand how difficult it is to stand up for yourself and make your voice heard and we're here to support you through your human rights claims. We'll take care of the heavy lifting so you can focus on getting back on track.
We know that discrimination can take many forms - racial, sexual orientation-based, gender identity-based, disability-based - and even ageism or age discrimination can be a problem. At KSW Lawyers, our law firm provides consultations with our human rights and employment lawyers so you can learn more about what protections are available to you. We also represent clients in employment law matters and in dealing with issues relating to landlord/tenant relationships.
Contact us today to schedule a meeting with one of our lawyers during which we'll talk about your situation and the options available for coming to a resolution.
The British Columbia Human Rights Code and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms are the legal frameworks that protect individuals from discrimination and abuse in British Columbia and Canada. If you believe your rights have been violated, and you're looking for a lawyer in Abbotsford who can help you fight for justice, look no further than KSW Lawyers.
We are passionate about human rights because we believe in standing up for the underdogs - and helping them win their cases so no one else ever has to go through what they did.
We can assist with a broad spectrum of human rights complaints, including the following:
Bullying and harassment are serious issues that can have a lasting impact on employees, the workplace, and the company itself.
If you have been bullied or harassed at work, it can be a very difficult experience. We know that it can cause stress, anxiety, and even depression. If you've witnessed bullying or harassment at work, it can be upsetting to see someone being treated badly by their colleagues.
If you believe your employer is failing to take action against bullying or harassment in the workplace investigations, you may need to consider contacting a lawyer to lodge a human rights complaint.
Sexual harassment complaints are a serious matter. If you have been a victim of sexual harassment, you should know your rights and the options available to you.
Employers can be held liable for sexual harassment committed by their employees while on the job if they know or should have known about it and failed to take corrective action. Employers may also be held liable if they perpetrate the offensive conduct themselves.
It's never easy to file a sexual harassment complaint. But it's important to know that you don't have to do it alone.
If you've experienced workplace discrimination, we're here to help. Whether it's gender discrimination or something else, we know how important it is to have your voice heard. We will fight for your rights and to make sure that the people who harmed you are held accountable.
Workplace discrimination occurs when someone is treated differently because of their race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, age or disability. It is most common among women and people of colour - but anyone can fall victim to it.
We know it can be frustrating when people don't see your worth or treat you as an equal in the workplace - and that's where our law firm comes in. We understand how upsetting it is to feel like you aren't being treated fairly and we want to make sure that no one has to speak up against discrimination alone. We believe that everyone deserves a fair chance at success in their career, and we want to help you get there.
If you've been discriminated against, you may need to lodge a claim through the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal.
The Tribunal is a provincial government body that hears cases about discrimination and harassment in employment, services, and housing. They can order a person or organization to stop their discriminatory behaviour, compensate the victim, and make recommendations for future prevention.
