Top 5 Employment Law Cases of 2018 Employment & Human

7 hours ago

1. Amberber v. IBM Canada Ltd., 2018 ONCA 571. This one is likely to make most employment lawyers top cases of 2018 lists. We all love a good termination clause case!
2. Watson v. The Governing Council of the Salvation Army of Canada, 2018 ONSC 1066. This case is important because of its #metoo angle. In this case, the Ontario Superior Court ruled that the Full and Final Release signed by Ms. Watson at the time of her termination did not prevent her from bringing a claim for damages for the sexual harassment she experienced at the hand of her former manager.
3. Unifor Local 707A v. Suncor Energy Inc., 2018 CanLII 53457. We have blogged about the Suncor Energy drug testing saga in the past. While not exactly a 2018 case, this case saw some movement in 2018 and we think it’s very noteworthy, especially given issues that recreational cannabis legalization is spurring.
4. A.B. v. Joe Singer Shoes Limited, 2018 HRTO 107. Another impactful case this year was that of A.B v. Joe Singer Shoes. This sad case saw the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal award $200,000 in human rights damages for injury to the Applicant’s dignity, feelings and self-respect harshly denouncing the abuse of power perpetrated by the employer against this long-time employee.
5. Roskaft v. RONA Inc., 2018 ONSC 2934. This is another case likely to be popular on the top 2018 lists. Some of the most common and tricky issues we deal with as employment lawyers are what to do when employees get sick.
