Our client was an injured worker who did all the right things – she filed a WSIB claim, she cooperated with her doctors, with her employer, and with the WSIB, for the purposes of returning to work. Although our client did the right things, her employer still suspended her indefinitely without pay, claiming that she could not be accommodated with her injuries. The medical evidence showed that our client was able to return to work with easily implemented accommodations.
We disagreed with the employer’s position and pursued a human rights claim on behalf of our client. Before the hearing, we were able to secure a substantial settlement for our client.
