The female customer didn’t notice the senior auto technician making a sexually explicit gesture behind her back but somebody else did. When confronted by his manager with the witness’s account, the 25-year veteran refused to admit any wrongdoing and was fired for his misconduct and dishonesty. But the court found wrongful dismissal. It was a “limited” and “isolated” incident that didn’t strike at the heart of the employment relationship, shatter the trust deserved of such a longstanding employee or jeopardize the company’s future operation. So the court awarded him $56.4K—20 weeks’ notice at $104K – the $47.6K earned in “mitigation” income by accepting a lesser job after being fired [Cuconato v. Parker Auto Care Ltd., 2018 ONSC 2803 (CanLII), 2018 ONSC 2803 (CanLII), May 3, 2018].
