An Ontario worker was constructively dismissed when a supervisor told her he didn’t want to see her again and her employer offered her a shorter shift to avoid him, the Ontario Labour Relations Board has ruled.

Lori Anderson was hired by Paula’s Food Services, a food concession operating at a steel mill in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., in June 2007. The concession ran a cafeteria in the steel mill’s main administrative building as well as a canteen at the mill. Anderson worked Monday to Friday at the canteen.
