Tony Dolce claimed he was unfairly terminated after taking an injury-related absence.

Dolce was dismissed on June 27, 2013, after an investigation by Ontario-based business Agropur found Dolce was dishonest about time off related to a knee injury.

On May 30, 2013, Dolce presented the employer with a note from his doctor explaining the recent inflammation of an old knee injury prevented him from doing his usual work. The note requested Dolce be moved to light duties or be off work for a period of up to two weeks.
