M.F. v Capilano

In MF v Capilano Golf and Country Club Ltd. BCHRT (2008), a groundskeeper with a good employment record became dependent on drugs and started missing work. At a meeting with the employer, he adamantly refused offers of accommodation (rehabilitation programs) and signed, instead, a last-chance agreement, which he breached within a few weeks by failing to notify the employer of his need to be absent from work.  The employer terminated him. The Tribunal dismissed his complaint, ruling that the employee had thwarted any attempt to accommodate him by failing to take the minimal steps to assist the accommodation process.
