OHR Guidance for Business Community

OHR Guidance publications are intended to assist the parties appearing before the Office of Human Rights in understanding the laws OHR enforces.  These publications do not constitute legal advice.  While complainants are not required to have an attorney to file a case at OHR, complainants should obtain an attorney if they seek legal advice, and should not substitute OHR Guidance publications as legal advice.  All cases are decided by OHR on their individual merits, regardless of the similarities found in the Guidance publications.
