Human Rights 

Asaf Rashid has long been a champion for human rights. He will assist people who wish to take matters to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario for cases in which they have suffered discrimination by landlords, employers, government services, or any other areas in which the human rights legislation applies.

 

Criminal Record Suspensions (Pardons)

Asaf Rashid will assist those who are applying to the Parole Board of Canada to get rid of their criminal records. These used to be called pardons. The government has replaced them with something called "record suspensions". Getting rid of a criminal record is very important for people to move on with their lives. A criminal record can prevent a person from getting a job, volunteering in the community, travelling to the United States or other countries, and in a number of other ways. Asaf Rashid will prepare your record suspension application and supporting materials and appeal any negative decisions if necessary.

 

Labour and Employment Law

Asaf Rashid has a particular interest in the unionization of inmate workers and prisoner labour and employment rights in general. He presented on the subject at the 2018 National Prison Law Conference, has written about the subject, and is actively developing this area of law.

 

Student disciplinary proceedings

Asaf Rashid has experience assisting students dealing with university disciplinary proceedings, where a student is accused of student Code of Conduct violations.

 

Other

Asaf Rashid may take on other matters as well, including civil claims, on a case-by case basis. These may include lawsuits against the police. Other services will be added over time.
