The British Columbia and Canada Human Rights Codes provides protection to employees in a variety of circumstances. The Codes prohibit discriminatory conduct on a defined number of grounds.

Rose recognizes that these cases often represent very unique and emotionally charged situations for both complainants and respondents and provide a representation that is compassionate and understanding to the unique nature of these cases.
The Employment Standards Act stipulates the minimum basic terms of employment that every employee in British Columbia is entitled to. Employers can unwittingly run afoul of the Act potentially resulting in very costly fines and penalties. In some situations the remedies available through the Act provide the only or best remedy for an employee. Rose has extensive knowledge and experience with the Act and regularly advises both employees and employers on the rights and responsibilities created by the Act. Rose also has extensive experience dealing with the Tribunal and resolution of complaints, either through identification of appropriate remedies and negotiating a resolution or in appropriate cases proceeding to a hearing.
