A Canadian Pacific (CP) conductor who had been off work due to a medical condition abruptly had his employment file closed by the company.

David Danchilla was hired by the company in 1988 and had to leave work on March 1, 2012. 

But on Aug. 24, 2015, CP decided to close his file and effectively terminate Danchilla’s employment, arguing undue hardship.
