Your Question:

I have a gender discrimination case that my union sent a letter saying that the company would not comply with the union and now I have gone to human rights to file a case do I need a lawyer to defend me

Response: No, you do not. You can handle the case on your own. However, at anytime that you are overwhelmed with the process, you can try to find employment Attorneys to assist you with the case. Unfortunately, most employment Attorneys charge between $5,000.00 and $10,000.00 to represent employees in employment discrimination cases.

You can use the following sites to find local employment/labor Attorneys:
