The broad prohibition against discrimination in Canada means that lawyers practicing in almost any field must be alive to the wide-ranging implications of human rights law. This requires a solid awareness of sweeping federal and provincial human rights legislation - legislation that specifically addresses questions of discrimination and equality - and a practical understanding of the regulatory framework and varied enforcement mechanisms.
Halsbury's Discrimination and Human Rightsvolume systematically sets out the law governing this important area, making it an invaluable touchstone for lawyers in virtually every area of practice. From fielding client queries on obligations in respect of hiring practices, to giving guidance on the application of the law governing in a landlord and tenant context, this volume will serve as a resource that is consulted with both frequency and confidence.
Topics covered include:
Bill of Rights
Human rights legislation
Forms of discriminationDirect and indirect discrimination Systemic discrimination Harassment Elements of prima facie discrimination
Defences and exceptions
Practice and procedure
And much more.
