A long-serving horticultural technician in Ontario was awarded his job back after he was fired over concerns about his performance and attendance.

P.K. had more than 23 years’ service with the municipality of Chatham-Kent when he was fired on Sept. 19, 2012. One disciplinary incident was noted on his file.

The one incident on P.K.’s file, which occurred on July 25, 2012, was a written warning issued to P.K. for leaving work early without proper authorization. P.K. left work early because he felt unwell that day and, though he told a co-worker what he was doing, P.K. failed to properly inform his supervisor.
