As the world becomes increasingly connected, the recruitment of foreign workers to Canada becomes more common. Workers are recruited for their skills and expertise in all sorts of areas to join large conglomerates as well as small businesses.

Unfortunately, some newly arrived workers are exposed to racial slurs or actions. It’s an ugly reality.

Employers have a duty to protect all workers to ensure workplace environments are free from harassment and discrimination. If this duty is breached it may be held liable.
