Hotel Didn’t Fire Night Auditor over Security Issues

A night auditor at a hotel complained to the general manager about the building’s security, specifically problems locking the entrances at night. When he was later fired, he claimed that it was because he’d raised health and safety concerns. The OHS Appeal Panel took the hotel’s side. No one else who worked at night had any security concerns. In addition, the evidence indicated that the hotel had fired the auditor for not performing his duties, arguing over his pay, discussing confidential matters with co-workers and having a general negative attitude [O.H.S. No. OHS-0178, [2011] NSOHSAP 37 (CanLII), Feb. 28, 2011].
