Cape Breton Post - - PROVINCE -

HAL­I­FAX — An in­de­pen­dent Nova Sco­tia hu­man rights board of in­quiry has set­tled a com­plaint with­out a find­ing of dis­crim­i­na­tion. Mary Brown claimed she lost her job and had been dis­crim­i­nated against by the St. Vin­cent De Paul So­ci­ety be­cause of her dis­abil­ity. St. Vin­cent De Paul de­nied it dis­crim­i­nated against her, and that Brown had been ad­vised by her doc­tor that she should no longer con­tinue work­ing. The Nova Sco­tia Hu­man Rights Com­mis­sion says it ap­proved of the set­tle­ment that the two sides reached. As part of the deal, the so­ci­ety will pay Brown $1,000 in gen­eral dam­ages.
