Employer warned to stop intimidating former employee

Sent inappropriate letter to worker who found a new job in the same building
|Canadian Employment Law Today

The Ontario Labour Relations Board has warned an employer to stop intimidating a former worker who quit, filed an action against the company and then found another job in the same building.

The board said Home Base Non-Profit Housing in Kingston, Ont., was out of line when it sent a letter to Carole Chafe on Feb. 17, 2005.

In that letter, Home Base said her former co-workers felt “a certain amount of antipathy” toward her and that it was “unfortunate” she was working in the same building. It asked her not to visit the Home Base offices or work areas if at all possible.
