The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

HAL­I­FAX — The Nova Sco­tia Hu­man Rights Com­mis­sion has or­dered the pro­vin­cial En­vi­ron­ment De­part­ment to pay dam­ages af­ter it dis­crim­i­nated against an em­ployee with phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties.

A new rul­ing from the com­mis­sion says the de­part­ment did not ac­com­mo­date the em­ployee, who suf­fered from chronic pain stem­ming from two car ac­ci­dents, when she re­turned to work in 2012.

The com­mis­sion has or­dered the de­part­ment to pay San­dra Wake­ham $51,000 for loss of past in­come and $35,000 in gen­eral dam­ages.
