Wakeham v. Nova Scotia Department of Environment, Board of Inquiry Decision


An independent human rights board of inquiry has ruled that the Nova Scotia Department of Environment discriminated against Sandra Wakeham when it did not provide reasonable accommodation as an employer for her disability.

Board chair Kathryn Raymond ruled that the Department of Environment must pay Ms. Wakeham $35,000 in general damages and $51,000 in damages for the loss of past income.

The finding and related remedies were determined after a board of inquiry which began in June 2016. Ms. Raymond has issued a two-part decision, which can be found online at https://humanrights.novascotia.ca/content/board-inquiry-decisions.
