RCMP Class Action
This RCMP lawsuit has been brought by former RCMP constable Janet Merlo as a proposed class action. Ms. Merlo is the plaintiff acting on behalf of female RCMP members. Ms. Merlo alleges that she and fellow female Members, Civilian Members and Public Service Employees were subject to gender-based discrimination, bullying and harassment and that the RCMP failed to exercise the duty to women in the RCMP to ensure that they could work in an environment free of gender-based discrimination, bullying and harassment.
Klein Lyons of Vancouver, British Columbia and Watkins Law of Thunder Bay, Ontario are the law firms that are representing the plaintiff and if certified as a class action, will act on behalf of the class.
