Cavalluzzo is counsel in the two Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario applications discussed in the Globe and Mail's article. The first application, McWilliam v. Toronto Police Services Board, alleges that the Toronto Police Services Board discriminated against Ms. McWilliam and carried out acts of reprisal after she complained about alleged sexual harassment, sexual solicitation and sexual advances from her supervisors in the workplace. Ms. McWilliam is represented by Kate Hughes and Tyler Boggs.

The second application, on behalf of the OPP Civilian Association of Managers and Specialists, alleges that OPP has engaged in systemic discrimination against civilian OPP employees who are predominately women by, among other things, paying them less compared to co-workers who are members of the OPP (and predominately men) performing the same or similar work. Jan Bowery and Danielle Bisnar are representing the OPP Civilian Association of Managers and Specialists.
