An independent Nova Scotia Human Rights board of inquiry in the case of Rodney Small v. Halifax Regional Municipality is scheduled to be held Sept. 22-30.
Mr. Small, an African Nova Scotian, alleges he was subject to racial discrimination and harassment at his workplace when working for HRM.
Mr. Small alleges he was wrongfully terminated after a work-related injury. HRM denies the allegations and says the claimant’s employment was terminated for failure to report to work.
The board of inquiry is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. each day, in the Valardo Room, Dartmouth Sportsplex, 110 Wyse Rd., Dartmouth. The board chair is Walter Thompson, who is independent of the commission, which is a party representing the public interest at the inquiry.
