Human Rights

 

This Office was forwarded an anonymous letter alleging wrongdoing within the Public Service Commission with respect to their job posting practices, which restrict applications for certain positions to applicants from under-represented groups.

In May 2014, this Office initiated an own motion investigation of the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission (NSHRC). This investigation was initiated based on a number of complaints received by this Office which were similar in nature and were also related to issues previously identified in an investigation conducted by the Office.
