Our employee client brought a successful claim in BC Supreme Court against her former employer for wrongful dismissal and was awarded contractual damages, as well as $15,000 in aggravated damages for the conduct of the employer. After the court gave its ruling, the employer contested our client’s claim for costs, arguing that the damages award fell within the jurisdiction of the Provincial Court. The Court considered these arguments and again ruled in our client’s favour, finding that she was entitled to costs.
