MIT specializes in dealing with human rights issues and development of anti-discrimination and
harassment policies. Where alleged violations occur, we can assist you to deal with these claims and
with respective human rights systems. Below is a compilation of the MIT Service Offerings. A brief
synopsis is provided on each offering. However, we can customize other engagements to address
your unique customer needs and challenges.
Human Rights Education and Learning
Human rights laws recognize the inherent dignity and worth of every person and provide for equal rights
and opportunities without discrimination. Human rights laws aim to create a climate of understanding
and mutual respect for the dignity and worth of each person, so that each person feels a part of the
community, organization, or institution. The MIT experts can educate your organization to deal with
issues of discrimination and harassment and your obligations under relevant human rights legislation.
Policy Review and Development
MIT is skilled in the review and development of policies. We can review existing human rights policies
resulting in the implementation of an updated internal human rights complaint resolution mechanism.
Our review may include recommended changes to your organization’s existing policies or the
development of new anti- discrimination and harassment policies. We can also train your organization
to avoid human rights violations.
Human rights laws protect all persons from discrimination and harassment based on factors such as
gender, disability, race, language, family status, gender, sexual orientation and so on. Unfortunately,
discrimination and harassment occur irrespective of human rights laws. MIT can provide your
organization or institution with up to date expertise in the investigation of allegations of discrimination
and harassment resulting in satisfactory clarity that gave rise to the issues.

agreement between parties. It is an alternate form of dispute resolution used to resolve conflicts in
modern day workplaces, organizations and institutions. MIT is equipped to provide your organization
with mediation expertise, skills and techniques to resolve a wide range of disputes and conflicts. In
its mediation practice, MIT focuses on results using relevant and current mediation principles and

the workplace and how to comply with the requirements of the Bill.

equitable and accessible workforce increases organizational effectiveness, lifts employee morale, brings
greater access, new segments of the marketplace and enhances productivity. In short, MIT can make

legislation and protect the legal human rights of employees in the workplace and services. MIT uses its
expertise to assist your organization in the design of internal resolution mechanisms, processes and

mechanisms specifically for your organization. We feature policies, guidelines and effective complaint
resolution processes and procedures in our design.
