Human Rights in the Workplace
Human rights protections extend to your workplace, which means in some cases, certain actions employers take to dismiss or terminate your employment might be considered a breach of Human Rights legislation that protects workers from discrimination in the workplace.
According to the Alberta Human Rights Act, it is illegal for employers to discriminate against an employee based on the following:
- Religious Beliefs
- Sexual Orientation
- Physical Disability
- Mental Disability
- Marital Status
- Family Status
- Source of Income
- Place of Origin
