Top court won’t hear appeal from harassed worker

The Supreme Court of Canada has refused to hear an appeal of last year’s Ontario Court of Appeal decision in Piresferreira v. Ayotte, 2010 ONCA 384, in which it was ruled a harassed employee could not bring a claim of negligent infliction of emotional distress against her employer, Bell Mobility. This case is significant since it protects employers from claims of negligent infliction of emotional distress. However, a harassed employee may still bring a claim within the existing constructive dismissal framework.
