In what circumstances will the adjournment of a Human Rights Tribunal hearing be adjourned?

Ontario, Canada

The following excerpt is from Chaudhary v. University of Ottawa, 2012 HRTO 2243 (CanLII):

Finally, I am concerned about the prejudice to the respondents having prepared for the hearing and made arrangements for witnesses to attend. However, in my view, this is one of those exceptional circumstances that justifies an adjournment of the hearing dates. In this regard, I would emphasis that the proceeding cannot be delayed indefinitely. See Blakely v. Queen’s University, 2011 HRTO 891, at para. 7.
