Description of last year's 2011 edition:

The Ontario Human Rights Code: Quick Reference provides an interesting and easy-to-read overview of the Ontario Human Rights Code and all that flows from the Code in terms of oversight, implementation and general impact. It explains key concepts in discrimination law, including the grounds of discrimination and reasonable accommodation. For easy reference, this guide follows the organization of the Code.

This is a particularly interesting time for human rights in Ontario because the Code was recently amended to give applicants direct access to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. The Ontario Human Rights Code: Quick Reference includes and explains the new procedures and significant amendments made to the Code in 2008. In addition, it includes the full text of the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Tribunal's Rules of Procedure and its plain language guide.

New additions to the 2001 Quick Reference include:
  • Review of new Court of Appeal decisions regarding drug testing and the test for discrimination
  • Discussion of liability for reprisal against individuals for exercising their human rights
  • Analysis of discrimination on the basis of family status, including the most recent decisions
  • Assessment of whether an application should be dismissed without a full hearing
  • Explanation of recent and proposed legislative changes under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005
  • Revised rules and practice directions of the Human Rights tribunal.
Price and availability subject to change. Shipping and applicable taxes extra.
