Human rights panel to decide whether archbishop’s assistant was illegally dismissed

Catholic World News - March 28, 2014

The Ontario Human Rights Tribunal is deciding whether the Archdiocese of Ottawa illegally fired Ginette Chaumont, the administrative assistant to Archbishop Terrence Prendergast.

Chaumont contended that the archdiocese discriminated against on the basis of age, sex, and disability and stated that “her job performance was eroded by menopause and depression,” the Ottawa Citizen reported.

The archdiocese responded that “it was not aware that Chaumont had depression or menopause when it dismissed her for incompetence, and so cannot be accused of discrimination.”
