For Lawyers and Students
The Equity Ombudsperson provides neutral and confidential
assistance to lawyers, articling students and support staff working
for legal employers who ask for help in resolving complaints of
discrimination or harassment. The role of the Equity
Ombudsperson is to listen to complaints, assess the nature of the
complaint and inform the individual about potential measures for
dealing with the complaint.
The Equity Ombudsperson for Saskatchewan is a contract position
with the Law Society of Saskatchewan. A call to the Equity
Ombudsperson is not a complaint to the Law Society. Except
for information about the misappropriation of funds, the Equity
Ombudsperson reports only anonymous statistics to the Law
Society. Names are left out of reports.
