Synopsis By: - Proceeding Author: James C. Oakley, Owen V. Gray, David Starkman

In Canada, legislated rights are considered to be incorporated into every collective agreement, and an arbitrator has the jurisdiction to apply those rights and provide remedies for their breach. The Ontario Human Rights Code provides that the same rights can be adjudicated by the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. (?HRTO?) This paper describes recent decisions by the HRTO’s in reviewing of arbitrator’s decisions, and by the Supreme Court of Canada.
