Superior Court rules Ontario Human Rights Tribunal hearing was unfair
by Moira Welsh
A Mississauga businesswoman whose home was ordered seized to pay an Ontario Human Rights Tribunal award to a former employee can keep her house — for now.
The Superior Court struck down the "fatally flawed" decision as so unfair to defendant Maxcine Telfer — who represented herself in the hearing — that it was "simply not possible to logically follow the pathway taken by the adjudicator."
That October 2009 decision ordered Telfer to pay $36,000 to a woman who had been her employee for six weeks. Lawyers wanted the sheriff to seize and sell Telfer's home to collect the money.
