You cannot question an illegal Moslem; it’s discriminatory (and costly)

Canada: Human Rights Tribunal awards $120,000 to Muslim who lied on job application and didn’t get the job

“Though it is legitimate not to hire someone because they lied, if the reason they lied was to avoid discriminatory treatment, the tribunal held, the lie is justified and the question illegal.”

Would Muhammad Haseeb be getting $120,000 if he weren’t Muslim? And yet Muslims in Canada will still continue to claim that they are victims of “Islamophobia” and discrimination, even as they solidify their status as a protected class that must be catered to in all circumstances.

“Ontario human rights tribunal orders Imperial Oil to pay $120,000 to a worker it didn’t hire,” by Jon Pinkus, National Post, October 9, 2019:

A recent award from Ontario’s human rights tribunal should have employers carefully reviewing their HR policies and emailing their employment lawyers.

Muhammad Haseeb, a university graduate in engineering, has been awarded over $120,000 by the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario in a discrimination in employment application against Imperial Oil. What makes this case particularly interesting is that Haseeb never actually worked for Imperial Oil. The discrimination in question was the company’s reneging on a job offer.

The case involved a hiring policy requiring applicants to prove they were eligible to work in Canada on a permanent basis. Haseeb would have been eligible for a work permit for a job at Imperial Oil but he was neither a Canadian citizen nor permanent resident. In his application, he stated — falsely — that he was in fact eligible to work on a permanent basis. This led to a job offer. But when Imperial Oil asked for proof of citizenship or permanent residency, he could not provide it. As a result, Imperial Oil rescinded the offer.

Before the human rights tribunal, the company argued that the offer was rescinded because of Haseeb’s dishonesty, not his lack of citizenship. The tribunal held that although Haseeb may have been dishonest, the discriminatory policy the company followed was enough to constitute a violation of Ontario’s Human Rights Code. What discriminatory policy is that, you may ask? The employer distinguished between candidates based on whether or not they were Canadian citizens. The tribunal ruled that this distinction was not a bona fide occupational requirement. Though it is legitimate not to hire someone because they lied, if the reason they lied was to avoid discriminatory treatment, the tribunal held, the lie is justified and the question illegal.

Under Ontario human rights law, successful applicants are put in the position they would have been in but for the discriminatory action. Haseeb successfully argued that he was entitled to be paid lost income for the four years — yes, four years — his case took to be heard and decided. On top of that, he was awarded $15,000 as compensation for injury to his dignity, feelings and self-respect….

Awards as high as Haseeb’s are still relatively rare. But employers in the province may need to recalibrate the financial risk they face for violating the Human Rights Code. One thing is clear: discrimination has become a very costly mistake in Ontario.

  1. Social justice tribunal. It is staffed with social activists. It must be dissolved.

    It’s true purpose is definitely not to uphold “one law for all individual humans,” but to subvert that universally applicable law in favour of “oppressed minority gang rights!” It’s an exercise in gangster group-might-made-rights extortion of all individuals and lesser gangs (like small businesses and small corporations) to enrich the largest “victimology” gangs.

    So, these asshats aren’t even real judges, yet they somehow managed to ‘rule’ that the real laws concerning whether one is allowed to work in Canada or not (Pst! Hey, fake judges: they’re called “work permits”) are somehow illegal (despite being passed by elected politicians, and in place for decades) and ‘discriminatory.’

    Well, WRONG! What’s ‘discriminatory’ is some unelected social justice warriors pretending to be real judges discriminating against any real Canadian citizens trying to legally get jobs in their own country, and so being forced out of potential legal employment by legally ineligible non-residents because of their insane “rulings!”

    There are real laws on the books which determine if someone is allowed to work in Canada or not. But these fake judges from the illegal dual (in)justice system set up by a few federal liberal cabinet ministers back in the 1970s have apparently determined that these real Canadian laws created by elected politicians don’t count against muslim hurt feewings.

  3. The “Ontario Human Rights Commission” and Tribunal are nothing more or less than a Social justice commission and tribunal, staffed with social activists. They must be dissolved.

    Their true purpose is definitely not to uphold “one law for all individual humans,” but to subvert that universally applicable law in favour of “oppressed minority gang rights!” It’s an exercise in gangster group-might-made-rights extortion of all individuals and lesser gangs (like small businesses and small corporations) to enrich the largest “victimology” gangs.

    HRCs are some sort of (illegal) parallel justice system started by liberals back in the 1970s. So fake “judges” in Canada said that the Canadian law which says you have to be a Canadian citizen to be employed, was “discriminatory” (towards non-Canadians)?! So if you then lie (aka commit criminal FRAUD – which is also supposedly a crime in Canadian laws) to avoid the
    discrimination,” it’s perfectly legal, and if your feewings got hurt, they owe you money for not hiring you in the first place?!
