Human Rights

Defending Employment and Service-Based Discrimination Claims

Our lawyers at Gourlay Spencer Wade LLP defend employers, service providers and other clients against claims brought under the Human Rights Code, the British Columbia statute that prohibits discrimination in areas such as employment, wages, accommodations, services, facilities and tenancies on the basis of certain specified factors, including race, colour, ancestry, sex, sexual orientation, religion, age or disability.

The accommodation of employees and customers can present particularly complex challenges to businesses, especially small businesses. Our firm is frequently called upon to defend employers and service providers that are accused by claimants of alleged discrimination.

Our lawyers also act for respondents facing all other types of human rights claims. Because our practice is heavily oriented toward litigation with a particular focus on administrative and governmental work, we are in a strong position to effectively represent clients before the Human Rights Tribunal. To schedule a consultation with our experienced human rights and employment lawyers, please contact our offices at 604-800-4398 or by e-mail.
