Stitz Litigation has helped Ontario employers respond to concerns over employee absenteeism, fight frivolous human rights complaints, address requests from employees for accommodation of disabilities in the workplace and develop policies and procedures to ensure compliance with human rights legislation such as the Ontario Human Rights Code and Canadian Human Rights Act.


The Human Rights Code protects against discrimination in such areas as:


  • Age

  • Ancestry, colour, race

  • Citizenship

  • Ethnic origin

  • Place of origin

  • Creed

  • Disability

  • Family status

  • Marital status (including single status)

  • Gender identity, gender expression

  • Receipt of public assistance (in housing only)

  • Record of offences (in employment only)

  • Sex (including pregnancy and breastfeeding)

  • Sexual orientation.


Employers must be vigilant that they treat employees fairly and that they respond to allegations of discrimination, harassment and accommodation of disabilities in a serious manner. Policies, procedures and a proper response are required. Stitz Litigation helps employers navigate workplace human rights, discrimination and accommodation issues.
