"B.C. Human Rights Tribunal Changes – Will They Be Enough?"

Jurisdiction: - British Columbia

The Business Council of British Columbia has published an article entitled, "B.C. Human Rights Tribunal Changes – Will They Be Enough?" (September 2011) in its Human Capital Law and Policy publication.

The article was co-written by Thomas Roper, Q.C. and Jennifer Russell of the law firm Roper Greyell.

Among other issues, it addresses the "growing dissatisfaction within some segments of the employer community regarding the work of the [BC Human Rights] Tribunal" and the study undertaken last year by the British Columbia Law Institute, at the behest of the BC Ministry of Labour, of the merits of establishing a Workplace Tribunal for British Columbia that would adjudicate all employment related disputes.
