Human rights law involves assisting clients with issues under the Ontario Human Rights Code or the Canada Human Rights Act, whichever is applicable. Additionally, the Canadian Charter of Human Rights and Freedom may become relevant in cases involving the application of legislation or the conduct of government and its agencies.

Human rights issues can arise in the workplace or in other relationships between individuals such as housing, services, and access to facilities. Claims are generally based on an allegation that an individual has been discriminated against and/or harassed on the basis of a number of grounds set out in the applicable human rights legislation (examples include race, sex, sexual orientation, age, etc.).

Hello, finally stopping by to say thank you for everything! I had the honor of having Jill McCartney work my case, amazing person to work with she is very nice, explains things very thoroughly. No complaints. - K.W.

As the COO of a midsize company I contacted Siskinds with regards to an intricate and somewhat challenging H.R. issue, and we were directed to Christopher Sinal. Upon review of this complex situation, his in depth knowledge of H.R. law allowed us to construct a clear and strategic plan. Phone calls and email enquiries were dealt with efficiently and timely. Chris displayed his competency and confidence in our final negotiations to bring closure to the case. We appreciate his preparedness and professionalism in representing our firm. - B.D.

When I was reflecting on the year 2020, and thinking of the people that had the most impact on me, you [Rasha El-Tawil] quickly came to mind. I was stressed and uncomfortable for the past few years, but when you took my case, I have since been able to relax and focus on other aspects of my life. I want to take a moment to thank you for making my 2020 easier. Not only have you contributed to my personal case, but you’ve also taught me the traits that an amazingly kind and intelligent lawyer should have. -T.H.
