What is the basis for an application to anonymize a respondent's name?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from A v. The University and others, 2012 BCHRT 183 (CanLII):

The Respondents rely on ND v. University of British Columbia and others, 2009 BCHRT 60, in which an application to anonymize a respondent’s name was granted. In that complaint, the respondents argued that the allegations the complainant made against Dr. A, if made public, would not just be embarrassing, but would be harmful to his personal and professional reputation, and would detrimentally impact his ability to effectively perform his job. They argued that, in Dr. A’s particular position, the publication of the allegations against him would undermine his patients’ and colleagues’ ability to trust him and feel confident in their interactions with him. The complainant did not respond to the respondents’ application but to say that she did not agree.
