What is the difference between allegations of "subbing up" and a meeting in January 2008 and allegations of sexual harassment in October 2007?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Smith v. B.C. Ferries, 2009 BCHRT 160 (CanLII):

Further, I find that the allegations related to “subbing up” and the meeting in January 2008, are not of the same character as the timely allegations and therefore there is no continuing contravention in regard to these allegations. Also, in regard to the October 2007 allegations, I find that the length of time between these allegations and the timely allegations is significant and, therefore, they are not part of a continuing contravention: Dickson v. Vancouver Island Human Rights Coalition, 2005 BCHRT 209, paras. 16 – 17.
