If the Tribunal sends you a Notification which alleges you or your organization is responsible for discrimination or harassment you will be asked to complete a Reply form and send it back to the Tribunal within 60 days.
You must not ignore your responsibility to complete and file a Reply. There can be legal consequences for you failing to do so. This can include orders being made against you that require you pay damages to the Applicant (money for engaging in discrimination or harassment). These orders can be enforced in court. If you have any questions regarding the Notification or the resolution process, a Nunavut Human Rights Tribunal Human Rights Officer is available to help at 1-866-413-6478 toll-free.
If you have received a Human Rights Tribunal Notification saying you have engaged in discrimination or harassment you must complete a Reply form (download form now) and file it with the Human Rights Tribunal office.
The Reply form will ask you for your version of events and for your response to the Applicant’s allegations.
Any documentation that will support your response should be attached to the Reply. Whenever possible, you should seek the services of a lawyer who is authorized to practice law in Nunavut (see https://www.lawsociety.nu.ca/). You may also have other people in your family or community assist you in communicating with our office.
The form can be completed orally or in writing and in any of the official languages of Nunavut. It can be mailed, faxed, or emailed to the Tribunal Office to the attention of the Tribunal Executive Director.
