This instalment of You Make the Call features an employee with physical limitations who complained about the quality of his accommodation.

Krzystof Katarzynski worked for Nitta Gelatin Canada, a provider of food, pharmaceutical and technical gelatins in Toronto, since 1990. In March 2004, Katarzynski was injured at work. He received workers compensation but he developed arthritis in his hip due to the pain. As a result, Nitta assigned him to a position that didn’t require the use of stairs during the workday.
