BUSINESS

Employment Law and Human Rights

Employment Law and Human Rights are broad areas of law, and any legal team must have the skills and the knowledge to match. Resolving disputes as early as possible through careful consideration, advice, planning, and even prevention is always our preferred approach.

However, with over 65 years of employment law experience on our team in all levels of Court and provincial and federal tribunals,  we can help you navigate any employment and human rights claims that arise in your business.

Human Rights Issues at the Workplace

As an employer, you have obligations to your employees under the Human Rights Code, which include going above and beyond providing a workplace free from discrimination and harassment to other forms of accommodations. Because of this, determining whether or not you and your company are adequately protected and you have sufficiently accommodated your employees can be difficult to assess on your own.

Whether you have an employee with a medical issue, a disability, or who requires some other form of accommodation, the employment lawyers at KSW Lawyers can help advise you on your obligations under the Human Rights Code, and provide insight and advice on liability, obligations, and risk based on your specific circumstances.

Advice for Businesses

More human rights complaints are being started against employers on a regular basis. It has become increasingly difficult for employers to maintain compliance with the fast evolving law in this area.

Our experienced team helps employers navigate and understand the connection between human rights and other related workplace issues or principles to be able to achieve their organizational goals while eliminating or reducing risk and liability.

Some examples of issues we can assist with include:

- Advice on Avoiding Human Rights Claims
- Duty to Accommodate Advice
- Managing the Absent Employee
- Disability Claim Management and Advice
- Succession Planning for Older Employees
- Mediation of Human Rights Complaints
- Representation BC Human Rights Tribunal Hearings
