CLAS provides free legal advice to anyone in BC who has experienced sexual harassment in the workplace. You can receive up to 5 hours of free legal advice from a lawyer.
The lawyer can:
- Help you understand if you are experiencing sexual harassment
- Provide advice on how to address sexual harassment in your workplace
- Explain your legal options
- Help by reviewing or drafting documents
- Coach you through a complaint or legal process
- Refer you to services for additional support, such as counseling and employment services
Speaking to a SHARP Workplaces lawyer does not mean you have to file a complaint with your employer or pursue any legal process. Meetings are completely confidential and the lawyer supports you to decide what you want to do.
CLAS is a non-profit law firm serving people in British Columbia since 1971. We were the first community law office in BC.

CLAS operates programs and projects that assist individuals with human rights, housing rights, income security, workers’ rights, mental health rights and workplace sexual harassment.
Everyone should have access to the justice system.
