The Alberta Human Rights Tribunal awarded lost wages and $30,000 in general damages to a female mechanic who was chastised and criticized at work in relation to both her disabilities and gender, and then dismissed while on leave, holding that the employer's actions created a poisoned work environment and that her gender and disabilities were factors in her dismissal.
