Ivens v. Automodular Assemblies Inc. (2002), 18 C.C.E.L. (3d) 240 (Ont. S.C.J.)

Roben Ivens was hired as a labourer by Automodular Assemblies Inc. and was dismissed after two months of employment. As a result of various health-related issues, she was absent from work on a number of occasions. Her employment was terminated for cause due to excessive absenteeism and failure to meet the company’s performance standards.

The trial judge held Automodular had failed to follow its normal disciplinary procedure as outlined in its employee handbook in dismissing Ivens in respect of her performance.
