An independent human rights board of inquiry will conduct a followup hearing Friday, Aug. 15, on the remedy the Tri-County Regional School Board and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) owes to James Holland for discrimination based on age.
The board chair found in a Dec. 11 decision that Mr. Holland’s mandatory retirement in June 2011 was contrary to the Nova Scotia Human Rights Act. Since 2009, mandatory retirement is generally no longer allowed under the Human Rights Act.
The hearing will take place at 1 p.m. in the Harbourside Conference Room at the Community Business Development Centre, 157 Water St., Shelburne. The board chair is Marion Hill.
