Gaining Fair Treatment For Victims Of Workplace Discrimination

As an employee, you have the right to equality and freedom from bias in the workplace. If you are being treated unfairly due to the personal characteristics that make you unique, you may be a victim of illegal discrimination. At De Bousquet PC, our lawyers can defend your rights and hold the perpetrators and your employer accountable.

Do You Have A Case For Discrimination?

Workplace discrimination can be challenging to identify. Incidents can be very subtle, so they may be hard to prove. Prohibited grounds for discrimination include:

  • Race, colour or ethnicity or place of origin
  • Sex
  • Age or handicap
  • Marital status or sexual orientation
  • Religion

If you suspect that you are a victim, our lawyers can analyze your case and provide you with an honest assessment of the facts. We can help determine if, due to prohibited grounds, you are being or have been:

  • Denied employment opportunities
  • Deprived of standard entitlements guaranteed by law
  • Overlooked for advancement and rewards
  • Harassed or bullied by your boss or colleagues
  • Wrongfully dismissed
  • Impacted by other job-related decisions

Navigating You Through The Process

If proof exists to back your case, our team can uncover it and use it to fight for your right to equal treatment. We will work closely with you to gather evidence, build a case and determine the best strategy. Some employees hesitate to speak out due to fear of reprisals. Speaking with our lawyers is an important first step to protect your right to fair treatment.

Our firm has extensive experience representing employees who have been discriminated against in Etobicoke and Mississauga. We have appeared before numerous hearings at the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario and the Canadian Human Rights Commission.

We know the processes, the legislation and the case law and will use our skill to seek the compensation, reinstatement or other damages you deserve.
