A worker claimed that she developed respiratory problems and a bladder infection after floods in the workplace caused mould to grow. Her workers’ comp claims were rejected. On appeal, the Tribunal upheld the denial of her claims, ruling that the medical and other evidence didn’t support a finding of a “causal relationship” between the worker’s occupational exposure to mould and her illnesses [WCAT #2009-209-AD, [2011] CanLII 50675 (NS WCAT), Aug. 19, 2011].
