Transcript of Discrimination on racial grounds.
What would you have done/ how would u have felt in his case?
What he did & how he felt
Matheson claims only reason why he talked about the Somali culture is because of a recent article he'd read
He was not suitable for the job: "There were norms within the industry that he was not meeting", "I didn’t think the person was Somalian. The email was about how the person misunderstood the culture of the financial services"
Claims he was only trying to be helpful
Disagreement over how much contact they had: Matheson said they had a phone call while Hadi-Yusuf said that never occurred
At first, when he received the e-mail he could only laugh
He then said in another article that he felt dis humanized
Filed a human rights complaint against the company with a provincial tribunal
Connections to the law
The Ontario Human Rights Commission's guide says that "The right to 'equal treatment with respect to employment' covers applying for a job, being recruited, training, transfers, promotions, terms of apprenticeship, dismissal and layoffs.”
The procedural law to discrimination:
characteristic ( race or sexuality) protected by the law
must have experienced adverse treatment (by accessing a service or employment)
the characteristic somewhat influence the adverse treatment
