Another Winner!

[Nova Scotia Chronicle Herald] A manager with the Conseil scolaire acadien provincial who was forced to retire because he was too old has won a human rights case against his former employer.

This bit is our favourite:

A human rights officer initially investigates each complaint. If the commission believes a prima facie case of discrimination has been made, the case is referred to an independent board of inquiry.

Nothing like sending a made case to an “independent” panel. “Prima facie” — cool law lingo!
