College Couldn’t Retaliate Against Guard Because It Wasn’t His Employer


A security guard was assigned by the security company to patrol a college parking lot. He contacted the MOL about some safety concerns, which resulted in an inspector’s order. He was later reassigned and eventually let go. He filed a reprisal complaint against the security company and college. The Labour Relations Board dismissed the complaint against the college because it wasn’t his employer and there was no evidence that it had retaliated against him because he called the MOL [Dunphy v.
