The Lynch List, 14-Apr-2011

No truth to the rumor that the OHRC accepted a complaint against a charity soup kitchen for refusing to provide room service to an SRO occupant suffering from a hangnail…

First: Another instalment in the series of “my disability allows me to get away with anything at work”:

Silva testified he fired Hoang because of his attitude, not because of his back injury. He recalled that on Aug. 17, 2009, the day Hoang was fired, Silva told Hoang and another worker to end their shifts early because it was a slow day. The supervisor recalled Hoang got into a “heated” discussion, so Silva fired him. Silva recalled Hoang had previously been hostile to other drivers, even trying to provoke one into a physical fight.

Second: Even the lawyers are starting to notice:

For many years, [awards of damages for injury to dignity, feelings, and self-respect]  tended to be relatively modest in nature, typically well under $10,000. More recently, however, there has been a noticeable increase in some of these awards.

Third: Hm. Time for a Human Rights Complaint over the term “Israli Apartheid”? Something tells me that it’s a foregone conclusion…
