Disabled employees can’t be ‘complainants’

Can’t use corporate oppression remedy to get shares other employees received
|Canadian Employment Law Today

For the second time, some disabled employees of a pulp-and-paper mill have lost their bid to get shares available for free to all other employees.

The employees worked for Spruce Falls Paper in Ontario. The mill was owned by Kimberley-Clark and the New York Times corporation, and when the 1990 recession hit, they wanted to make deep cuts.

Concerned that this would cause massive job loss and possibly destroy their community, the employees and other community members struck a deal to buy the company’s shares.
