The purpose of this brochure is to inform employers and their management personnel about the existence, requirements, and effects of the Canadian Human Rights Act. Section 1 is an introduction to the Act. Section 2 focuses on preventive action by employers to eliminate discrimination. Special programs/affirmative action undertaken by employers to eliminate systemic discrimination and ensure compliance with the Act are discussed in the third section. Section 4 recommends criteria for nondiscriminatory employment practices, especially regarding recruiting and interviewing information. In section 5 the employers' role in the complaint procedure is considered. The final section of the brochure deals with equal pay for work of equal value and describes the role of the Canadian Human Rights Commission. A list of Canadian Human Rights Commission offices is appended. (A French language version of the material is provided. A Recruitment and Interview Guide for employers is also inserted. It covers information traditionally requested by employers and tells whether or not it is nondiscriminatory.) (YLB)
