Costs & Conduct

Posted on September 19, 2022 | Posted in Commercial Matters, Five Liners

Gracias v. Dr. David Walt Dentistry 2022 Ont SCJ

Costs – the employee sued for wrongful dismissal and was mostly unsuccessful. Both the employer and employee asked for costs. The judge did not like the attitudes and actions of either of them. The employee could have been in Small Claims Court, made unsubstantiated claims of human rights violations, and was dilatory in production of documents. The employer had claimed it terminated for cause and alleged that the employee had fabricated evidence. Neither was proved. The judge refused to order costs to either of them.
