Human Rights & Discrimination in British Columbia

Human rights in the workplace

Human rights law deals with the protection from discrimination based on a person’s age, race, sexual orientation, mental/physical disability and other “grounds”.

These laws provide rights and responsibilities to both employers and employees in the workplace.

Many wrongful dismissal or termination cases involve a breach not only of the employment contract, but also of human rights legislation that protects you from discrimination in the workplace.

Our human rights lawyers can help assert or defend your rights at work.

Human rights protections extend into your employment. In many wrongful dismissal or termination cases, an employer’s actions not only breach the employment contract but also offend Human Rights legislation that exists to protect you from discrimination in the workplace.

Under the BC Human Rights Code, an employer may not discriminate against an employee on the basis of

  • race
  • colour
  • ancestry
  • place of origin
  • religious beliefs
  • gender
  • age
  • physical disability
  • mental disability
  • marital status
  • family status
  • source of income
  • sexual orientation

    Client Testimonials


    Professional and Knowledgeable

    I was in Europe with a nine hour time difference when I lost my job here in Vancouver. This law firm was recommended to me by a friend of mine who is a family lawyer. I had the pleasure of working with Alfonso Chen. Not only was he professional and knowledgeable in answering all my questions and concerns but he was accommodating to the time difference and truly empathetic as I was dealing with the loss of a job away from my support network. I had a great experience working with him and would recommend him to anyone looking for an employment lawyer in Vancouver, BC.”
