Employees in Ontario with a Human Rights complaint have a number of options. First of all, a key issue is determining whether the employer is federally or provincially regulated.
i. Canadian Human Rights Act
If the employer is federally regulated (eg. airlines, banks, railway companies, telecommunications companies), employees wishing to file human rights complaints will need to proceed under the Canadian Human Rights Act. Detailed information about the process for filing and proceeding with this type of complaint can be found at the Canadian Human Rights Commission website – http://www.chrc-ccdp.ca/default-eng.aspx.
