Ontario Labour Relations Board has upheld the firing of a school board employee who was involved in an obscenity-laced altercation with a student who was bullying her daughter.

Sylvia Hatzantonis was hired by the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) in February 2003 as a site clerical with the board’s English and French language training for adult immigrants.
