Unfortunately discrimination and harassment on the job continue to be a reality for many employees. Often, employees don’t know about their rights or don’t know how to fight back against a bad boss. Sarah’s focus is on gender discrimination, sexual harassment and pregnancy discrimination. Some of Sarah’s human rights work includes cases like:

  • Suing employers for sexual harassment based on inappropriate comments or sexual assault in the workplace, whether this is based on her client’s sex, gender/gender identity or gender expression
  • Providing guidance to employees who need accommodation in the workplace during their pregnancies or following miscarriage
  • Representing employees in human rights tribunal applications when their jobs are eliminated during maternity leave or parental leave
  • Working with employees to achieve reasonable workplace parental status accommodations to ensure that they can balance daycare and their shifts
  • Addressing issues like the gender pay gap and other sexist policies in the workplace
  • Assisting employers in developing meaningful policies and training on human rights, discrimination and sexual harassment in their workplaces

Hamilton Workplace Investigations

 

Hamilton workplace investigations are critical for employers for a number of reasons. Harassment complaints have negative impacts on the workforce:  increased absenteeism, increased disability costs, more grievances, decreased productivity, increased conflict among staff, high turnover, poor morale, and ultimately higher liability and legal costs. That’s why choosing the right Hamilton workplace investigator is key to a successful resolution of these workplace issues.

And that’s not all. Increased complaints of harassment, violence, and discrimination in the workplace also affect individual employees—and not in a good way. Hamilton workplace investigations are critical because the impact on victims can, in fact, be crippling: work-related stress and anxieties; violent, aggressive or tearful behaviour at work; self-esteem problems; decreased productivity; and other long-term consequences.
