Aylesford ruling

The Nova Scotia Court of Appeal has allowed an appeal that lead to the reporting of a restorative agreement regarding a human rights complaint by a former employee of an Aylesford company.

Dewayne Charlton worked at Homestead Cheese Sales as a truck driver.

He suffered a hernia in July 2014 and Holmestead placed him on medical leave.

Charlton said Holmestead’s Nick Tziolas accused him of “doing nothing all summer but lazing around at home instead of coming to work.”

Tziolas then fired him.

Charlton’s complaint said Holmestead discriminated based on disability.
