Grant v. Manitoba Telecom Services Inc. (No. 4) (2012), CHRR Doc. 12-3030, 2012 CHRT 10
DISABILITY — REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION — EMPLOYMENT EVALUATION AND TESTING — EVIDENCE — DAMAGES — REMEDIES / Decision on a complaint of discrimination in employment on the basis of disability. The Tribunal found that the complainant's disability, Type II diabetes, was at least one of the factors to her receiving a negative job performance evaluation which was used to determine who would be laid off. The respondent did not provide a reasonable explanation for its discriminatory conduct. The Tribunal ordered the respondent to pay $10,000 in compensation for pain and suffering and $10,000 for having engaged in the discriminatory practice wilfully or recklessly. The respondent was ordered to work with the Commission to train high level management in, and to develop a policy on, the duty to accommodate. Allowed: Apr. 26, 2012.
