Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Trites v. New Directions Aromatics Inc., 2014 HRTO 601 (CanLII):

The Tribunal’s jurisprudence has primarily applied two criteria in evaluating appropriate compensation for injury to dignity, feelings and self-respect: the objective seriousness of the conduct and the effect on the particular applicant who experienced discrimination. See Arunachalam v. Best Buy Canada, 2010 HRTO 1880 at para. 52.
