A South Asian newcomer started working as a salesperson at a car dealership. After a few days of working, his managers started calling him various names including “Paki” and “terrorist”. They played You Tube videos that mocked the Punjabi culture.

Our client complained in an email to the owner. The client was offered money to leave and he refused. They then sent him a letter telling him he was fired.

Before an application to the Tribunal was filed, the Centre negotiated a financial settlement for our client and an agreement requiring the dealership to provide human rights training to its managers.
