Harassement Of A Non-sexual Nature
Q: I'm interested in hearing from individuals successful in pursuing harassment cases
of a non sexual nature. Their employers made the working conditions
intolerable and treated them different than co-workers.
A: Harassment of many varieties are Ontario Human Rights Code violations. But the inquirer simply said that he was the victim of harassment of a non-sexual nature. He did not say that he was subject to harassment because of his race, country of origin, religion, etc. If he is harassed because of personal acrimony between himself and his boss, there is no human rights issue to pursue. Find cases in which the principle of constructive dismissal is explored. For an Ontario case see Vorvis v. Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. Harassment usually is used in the context of sexual conduct, and the tort of sexual harassment is a species of gender discrimination; a human rights offence. I don't think you are going to find anything by researching harassment that is applicable to your fact situation.
