3. Check to see if you should make a human rights claim

If you think your employer is discriminating against you, you can get free legal advice and information from the Human Rights Legal Support Centre.

The Centre can help you figure out:

  • whether to make a claim with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario
  • what might help you prove that an employer discriminated against you

The Centre also helps people when they apply to the Tribunal and, in some cases, at the Tribunal.

You can also check out the Centre's online tool Can We Help You? to see if you might be able to make a claim.
