A woman hosted a party at her home to which she invited co-workers. A male co-worker raped her at the end of the party, and she advised her manager the next day. The Human Resources (HR) department did an investigation, during which the alleged rapist was suspended. The investigation concluded that there were no witnesses.

The woman requested a transfer to another location because she could not bear to face her rapist at work. The employer scheduled her to a different shift so that she would never have to see him. She worked a couple of shifts, and then walked into the storeroom to find him there. She became extremely upset and had to go on medical leave.

The Centre negotiated a settlement that included:

  • A return to work at a different location doing a slightly different job;
  • She will be given her previous position as soon as one becomes available in the new location.
