Our client employed Ms. Kang as a caregiver and dismissed her for cause after approximately 6 years of service. Following her dismissal, Ms. Kang brought a human rights complaint against our client, claiming that our client discriminated against her during the course of her employment on the grounds of sex, ancestry, and color contrary to the BC Human Rights Code. The complaint was based on two alleged statements by our client to Ms. Kang, one which allegedly occurred while Ms. Kang was employed and the other following her dismissal. On behalf of our client, we filed an application to have Ms. Kang’s complaint dismissed. After considering the evidence, the Human Rights Tribunal concluded that Ms. Kang’s complaint had no reasonable prospect of success and granted our application to dismiss the complaint against our client.
