The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario has awarded damages of $75,000 to a 15-year-old former intern who worked at a tattoo parlour.
The teenager made a complaint under chapter H.19 of the Human Rights Code, which pertains to discrimination in employment because of sex, sexual harassment, sexual solicitation or advances, gender identity and age. The damages were sought as compensation for “injury to dignity, feelings and self-respect,” according to the tribunal’s record.
