Our client filed a Human Rights complaint against her employer, alleging discrimination in employment on the basis of mental disability. Her complaint was originally dismissed by the Human Rights Tribunal on the basis that it wasn’t “timely” (i.e. that it wasn’t filed by the deadline set out in the Human Rights Code). On our client’s behalf, we applied for a reconsideration of this decision. On reconsideration, the Tribunal determined that our client’s complaint was filed in time and allowed it to proceed.
