Cavalluzzo lawyers Kate Hughes and Tyler Boggs represent Police Constable Heather McWilliam in a sexual harassment application before the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, which has been ongoing for five years. This week, the HRTO cancelled final hearing dates just two weeks before they were scheduled to start, without explanation. As Kate and Tyler explain in this article in the Toronto Star, this is a huge setback that could result in the loss of 34 days’ worth of evidence and submissions.

The cost to PC McWilliam and this extreme delay are inherently unfair and undermine her rights to access to justice and fairness. These events are closely related to ongoing resource and staffing issues at the HRTO.
