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 that specifically addresses questions of discrimination and equality, as well as a practical understanding of the regulatory framework and varied enforcement mechanisms.
The Halsbury's Discrimination and Human Rights (2022 Reissue) volume systematically sets out the law governing this important area, making it an invaluable touchstone for lawyers not only in human rights law, but in virtually every area of practice. From fielding client queries on obligations in respect of hiring practices to providing guidance on the application of the law in a landlord and tenant context, this volume will serve as a resource that is consulted with both frequency and confidence.
