Dufferin Concrete’s decision to fire a worker for a safety infraction was hasty, an Ontario judge has ruled.

The employee, known as N.B., was hired by Dufferin Concrete as a millwright in October 2012.

On March 18, 2013, he was assigned to change a flow valve in the company’s Malton, Ont., plant.
