Human Rights Violations in Calgary
Even though it’s 2019, employers in Calgary still engage in human rights violations and discrimination in the workplace – and more often than you would think.
But whether it’s face-to-face or through a screen, this behaviour is unacceptable in the workplace; period. We know all too well how damaging this can become to your well-being and family life.

The Alberta Human Rights Act prohibits all workplace discrimination on the above-grounds. We fight to ensure our clients are supported in their claims first with employers directly and, if that fails, before the Alberta Human Rights Commission and Tribunal and all levels of Court in Alberta.
Ultimately, bullying, harassment, and discrimination on the basis of a protected ground should never be tolerated.
We are here to help Calgarians faced with human rights violations and discrimination in the workplace, be it according to a real or perceived ground, and pursue the justice they deserve to feel safe at work.
The reality is that many employers have access to a sophisticated legal team. They can make real instances of human rights violations and discrimination appear valid or benign. They may also take a different route, making it seem as though they’ve done their due diligence in dealing with these sorts of situations and that they’ve reasonably accommodated the employee.
Unfortunately, in many of these cases, they haven’t made a real effort to help their employees feel safe or accommodated in the workplace.

Be yourself in the workplace
If we find evidence of a human rights violation…
Your employer’s duty to accommodate you is a high one and let’s make sure they’re doing what’s legally required of them.
If we find evidence of a human rights violation or harassment, bullying, intimidation or discrimination on the basis of a protected ground, we will ensure that this conduct ends immediately. You shouldn’t have to deal with this type of treatment at work, and if you have, we will fight to have you reasonably accommodated and protected.
