A man worked in the automobile industry. He took a medical leave due to an unrelated accident. The employer asked him to return to work because they were short-staffed. His doctor’s note stated that he could return to work, but with some physical restrictions. He was fired after they learned of his restrictions, and was replaced with another employee who was younger and less experienced.

The Centre negotiated a settlement that included:

  • Financial compensation for the right to be free from discrimination;
  • Development of a Human Resources policy and complaint procedure within six months, to be confirmed with the Centre.
