rights legislation and provides skills training to help prevent
discrimination before it happens. We work with community groups,
employers, labour councils and unions, colleges and others to provide

- Workplace Discrimination – What Every Organization
Needs to Know;
- Duty to Accommodate – What the Law Says and How to
- Compliance Education – Educating Employees and Developing
Non-Discriminatory Human Resource Practices; and
- The Complaints Process – How it Works and What to
and view a copy of our Human Rights in the Workplace brochure.
It outlines a series of six modules designed specifically for employers.
All modules have a preventative focus while providing tools and
