A labour adjudicator has dismissed an Ontario bank employee’s claim his employer lied when it claimed he was dismissed because of restructuring.

Arun Senathirajah was a trade associate for the Canadian branch of State Street Bank and Trust Company, a global financial services provider. His position was part of State Street’s Global Transaction Processing Group (GTP).

The GTP had five hubs where trade associates would input transactions into the company’s data system, including one in Toronto, where Senathirajah worked.
