Bummer. Pain And Suffering Only Worth 6 Grand

Guelph Mercury – Matt Wozenilek can’t wait to try out the wheelchair-accessible door at his neighbourhood 7-Eleven store after taking the company to the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal and winning…

He filed an application with the tribunal Jan. 7, 2009 and later amended it, asking for $25,000 for pain and suffering, a public letter of regret from 7-Eleven and the installation of automatic doors at all 7-Eleven stores in Canada…

The tribunal decided the company did not have to write a public letter of regret but it would have to pay $6,000 to Wozenilek.

“I asked for $25,000 to get their attention,” Wozenilek said Wednesday. “I’m happy with the $6,000. It will cover my expenses.”
