Human rights and discrimination issues can be some of the most complex and challenging issues organizations may face. With an organization’s reputation on the line, along with ever-increasing potential liability when facing human rights complaints, organizations need to be informed of their obligations and be prepared to appropriately respond to complex human rights issues as they arise.
To help ensure your organization is informed and prepared, Fasken invites you to attend its inaugural National Human Rights Workshop - a comprehensive half-day presentation by Fasken’s leading human rights lawyers from its offices across Canada covering topical issues in all areas of human rights impacting on organizations.
