E Hewitt Law Firm

E. Hewitt

E. Hewitt Law has extensive experience in handling employment matters, with significant emphasis on issues of human rights, workplace harassment, discrimination, bullying and workplace violence.

Bill 168, which became effective on June 15, 2010, amended the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and placed additional emphasis and requirements on employers to effectively address workplace violence, harassment, discrimination and bullying.

Similarly, the Ontario Human Rights Code requires employers to provide a workplace free of harassment and discrimination on the basis of race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, age, record of offences, marital status, family status or disability.

E. Hewitt Law’s principal, Elizabeth Hewitt, has acted in the capacity of an external investigator in relation to such complaints and in creating and delivering effective training programs and policies to ensure compliance with OHSA and the Ontario Human Rights Code.

E. Hewitt Law works on behalf of employers to;

  • conduct external investigations and workplace reviews
  • prepare and deliver training programs
  • review, revise and/or draft policies
  • assess the risk of workplace violence.
