Can They Do That? Human Rights Webinar



An apartment manager says he won’t rent to a gay couple. A supervisor continually asks a worker when she will retire. A library customer tells another that people of his skin colour are not allowed in. An online job posting asks for male applicants only.

Which of those situations are discriminatory? And what should anyone do about it?

An archived webinar offers answers and information on how human rights law affects all Ontarians. It covers the essential elements needed to file a complaint, including: prohibited grounds; social area; adverse treatment; and the connection to a prohibited ground.

Recorded in 2012, the 48-minute video is supported by materials that include short questions and answers. It is presented by the Human Rights Legal Support Centre and Hamilton Community Legal Clinic.
