Foreign workers have the same human rights protections as other Ontario workers. The Ontario Human Rights Code sets out several protected grounds.
Protected grounds for purposes of employment include citizenship, race, place of origin, ethnic origin, colour, ancestry, disability, age, creed, sex, family status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and record of offences. Other provinces across Canada have their own specific human rights protections as provided in the relevant legislation.
An employer is not permitted to provide any discrimination or differential treatment based on the above grounds.
If you are an employee that has experiences harassment or discrimination that you believe may be a violation of your human rights, please contact Toronto immigration and employment lawyers, Sultan Lawyers at (416) 214-5111 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
