Flash: Short-Order Cooks Goof Off And Swear In The Kitchen! (Woman Wins $3500)

[Northern News Service] In her decision handed down June 13, adjudicator Shannon Gullberg stated that while she couldn’t find any evidence that the termination of Sherman’s kitchen job was discriminatory, she found the pranks with the stool and the continuous playing of offensive music during Sherman’s employment at Boston Pizza was discriminatory under the NWT Human Rights Act.

“It is absolutely unconscionable that Sherman was subjected to sexually explicit music for a year and a half, and had to suffer the humiliation of having to search for a stool that was hidden from her,” Gullberg stated in her ruling.

Gullberg ordered that the company that owns Yellowknife’s Boston Pizza franchise, Mbotloxo Investments, pay Sherman $1,000 for the injury caused to her “dignity, feelings, and self-respect,” plus $2,500 in punitive damages.

The rest.
