This 1 hour webinar is an introductory level course to human rights law aimed at advocates and service providers. This workshop will help you assist clients facing discrimination and human rights issues.
Advocates and service providers interact every day with marginalized and disadvantaged communities. These communities are especially vulnerable to violations of their human rights, whether in their employment, tenancy, or access to services.
Topics we will cover include:
• What is the Human Rights Code and what does it cover?
• What is discrimination? What does discrimination look like?
• What are my client’s rights if they have a disability?
• What are the steps in a human rights complaint?
• What can the Human Rights Tribunal do about discrimination?
• What additional help is available?
Our presenter, Laura Track, is a lawyer and the Director of Education for the Human Rights Clinic at the Community Legal Assistance Society.
