Reported Cases


Areas of Law considered in this case: - Employment law - Discrimination in Employment - Human Rights Act - Administrative Law - Human Rights - Record of Offences discrimination

Re Lancaster, Ontario Human Rights Commission v. Zellers Inc. (1986)10 C.C.E.L. 249

A loss prevention officer complained that he had been discriminated against in employment because of his record of criminal offence, for which he subsequently received a pardon. This officer had worked for the company previously and had been fired from the company for theft of $50.00 worth of merchandise.

When he applied for the loss prevention officer's position, after completing college training in this area, he did not disclose on his employment application that he had been convicted of a criminal offence for which he had not [at the time] received a pardon. Nor did he disclose that he had worked for the company previously and been fired for stealing $50.00 worth of merchandise.

The company had a policy not to rehire persons dismissed from its employment because of theft.

When the company found out that the complainant had worked for it previously and had been fired for stealing $50.00 worth of merchandise, the company fired the complainant again. The company argued that this firing accorded with its corporate policy, and was also justified as the complainant had lied on his application for employment.

The Board accepted the company's evidence that the company had decided to fire the complainant before the company became aware of the criminal conviction for theft. Since there was no discrimination against the complainant because of his record of offences [which were subsequently pardoned] there was no discrimination in employment under the Human Rights Code, the Board found.
