Human rights

Human rights is one of the fastest growing areas of workplace law, and rarely allows for one-size-fits-all solutions.

Mathews Dinsdale provides employers with practical advice on how to fulfil their legal obligations and foster a fair, inclusive, and discrimination-free workplace — and demonstrate that they have done so. Our lawyers understand the “big picture”, and can help you solve one problem without creating others.

Mathews Dinsdale’s approach emphasizes preventive measures such as well-drafted policies, training, and internal complaint systems. In appropriate cases, we are retained as to conduct internal investigations into complaints of harassment, discrimination, or other workplace culture issues, and assist our clients in resolving these in an appropriate and cost-effective manner.

When required, our lawyers are also skilled mediators and advocates who regularly appear before arbitrators, tribunals, and the courts.
