On January 18, 2011, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice overturned a 2009 decision by the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal that found Toronto employer Maxcine Telfer guilty of human rights violations against a former employee. According to the Toronto Star, the decision, which awarded the employee $36,000, could have resulted in the sale of Ms. Telfer’s home to pay for the damages after the complainant’s lawyers obtained a lien against the house to ensure payment.
