Shane Malcolm filed grievances against Glencore Canada after the employer fired him, and then fired him again.

First, Malcolm was terminated for excessive absenteeism in breach of his final chance agreement with the employer’s New Brunswick-based smelter work site.

A week after Malcolm’s firing, the employer gathered his belongings from his secure lockers on the work site, as per its policy. A small piece of silver and a clear plastic bag containing marijuana were discovered among his possessions.
