Dayna MacDearmid — an administrative assistant with Manitoba’s Department of Justice — was fired on Nov. 14, 2012, for what her employer called "ungovernable" behavior.

The Manitoba Government and General Employee’s Union (MGEU) filed grievances on MacDearmid’s behalf, arguing she was subjected to unreasonable scrutiny by her manager and co-workers. The union challenged MacDearmid’s termination.

MacDearmid was dismissed on Nov. 14, 2012, following an incident that took place on Nov. 8.
