A woman who was fired with cause for texting during a meeting and not being a “team player” has been awarded $5,164 in compensation for her seven years of service at the dental office where she worked.
The employer, dentist Dr. Paula Winsor-Lee of the Monashee Dental Centre in Lumby, B.C., appealed the decision that the Director of Employment Standards issued in March. But the B.C. Employment Standards Tribunal recently upheld it.
