If you have experienced sexual harassment at a workplace in Saskatchewan you can receive up to 4 hours of free legal advice. The program is available to individuals of any age or gender, regardless of income. It doesn’t matter how long ago the incident occurred.
If you are uncertain whether you have experienced workplace sexual harassment you can still receive a referral for free legal advice. A lawyer can help you understand workplace sexual harassment and help you make an informed decision about your options and next steps.
Complete the intake process online, or by phone at 306-974-3333 (Saskatoon) or 1-855-258-9415 (toll-free). Office hours are 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 3pm Monday to Friday.
If you have questions about the program you can also contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by text at 306-994-8422.
Once you have applied you will receive a response that includes a referral number, the name of a lawyer and contact information for that lawyer.
You can then contact the lawyer’s office to arrange for an appointment and provide the lawyer with your referral number.
Consultations with the lawyer can be by phone, email, in-person or through video-conferencing (Skype etc.) depending on your needs and what the lawyer can offer.
Before you share what happened to you, the lawyer will explain the confidential nature of the communications and ensure that you understand the nature of the legal services to be provided.
The lawyer will only provide legal information or advice. They cannot represent you in legal proceedings. All lawyers providing legal advice under this program have participated in training in order to provide services under the program.
The legal advice requested could cover topics like understanding whether workplace sexual harassment has occurred, as well as understanding your options for dealing with workplace sexual harassment and next steps.
If you have experienced sexual harassment or sexual violence that is not workplace sexual harassment you can receive free legal advice through the Listen Project.
This site provides general information about workplace sexual harassment only. It is not a substitute for receiving legal advice about your situation. Apply now to receive 4 hours of free legal advice.
The Shift Project is funded by the Department of Justice and delivered by the Public Legal Education Association of Saskatchewan (PLEA).
