Preparing Effective Human Rights Applications for the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario is a course that was designed with the needs of self-represented Applicants at heart. The majority of Applicants at the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario are self-represented, and Franklin Law designed this course to level the playing field and help those who plan on filing a human rights Application at the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario but do not want to , or cannot afford to, retain a lawyer or paralegal. The course helps self-represented individuals to prepare effective human rights Applications by moving beyond the basics of discrimination, harassment, accommodation, and reprisal, and focusing on legal concepts such as establishing a prima facie violation of the Human Rights Code and identifying situations in which a human rights Application is likely to be dismissed without a hearing on its merits. The course is primarily geared to human rights cases in the employment context but the concepts are applicable to all of the social areas and prohibited grounds under the Human Rights Code. This Course is essential for anyone who plans on filing a human rights Application at the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, and already has an understanding of basic human rights concepts such as discrimination, harassment, accommodation, and reprisal action.
Participants must have a solid understanding of basic human rights concepts such as discrimination, harassment, accommodation, and reprisal action before taking this course. If you do not have a solid understanding of these concepts, please consider enrolling in The Human Rights Workshop. More information about The Human Rights Workshop can be found here.
Courses are held approximately once per month at Fresh Paint Studio and Cafe and at other locations across the Greater Toronto Area. Light refreshments are served.
