Beals v. Dartmouth Comfort Inn Board of Inquiry Decision

A decision has issued by the chair of an independent human rights board of inquiry into the matter of Yvette Beals v. Dartmouth Comfort Inn.

Today, Donald Murray found that the Dartmouth Comfort Inn discriminated against Ms. Beals on the basis of her disability when they terminated her employment.

In a press release, the Human Rights Commission says Mr. Murray notes the employer did not meet their obligation to seek possible accommodations for Ms. Beals when they were made aware of her situation.

The two sides have been ordered to work with the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission to find a suitable remedy.

If the parties are unable to find a suitable remedy, the board of inquiry will be reconvened and will impose a remedy of its own.
