The Toronto Workers’ Health & Safety Legal Clinic’s latest newsletter includes case discussions of high-profile recent decisions.
Discussion of Monrose v. Double Diamond, an Ontario Human Rights Tribunal decision, and R. v. Sunrise Propane are included in the September newsletter, along with the agenda for the upcoming Annual General Meeting and news items.
The Clinic is funded by Legal Aid Ontario, to provide free information, legal advice and representation to non-union low-income workers who face health and safety problems at work.
The clinic offers legal assistance to workers who are disciplined or fired for raising health or safety concerns, or for refusing unsafe work. It also provides summary advice and representation in other areas of workplace law, such as employment standards, wrongful dismissal, human rights, Canada Pension Plan disability, employment insurance sick benefit, and Workplace Safety and Insurance Board matters.
Its staff are augmented by volunteers.
