Simran Bakshi on Workplace and Employment Law

Ontario Human Rights Tribunal does not hold back in awarding Damages for Egregious Sexual Harassment in the Workplace.

In the landmark decision of NK v Botuik, the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal awarded an employee $170,000 in general damages, marking the second highest award ever made in a sexual harassment case. The facts presenting in this case were egregious warranting such an award, including ongoing sexual harassment by a person of authority, sexual assault, wrongful criminal accusations against the victim, culminating in the wrongful termination of her employment.
