In today's nutty world the guy that posted the sign will probably be charged with setting a trap after a Darwinian finds a way to hurt himself testing the warning.

In 2019 he will probably be charged with reckless endangerment. The Left will argue he was guilty as he must have known it was a hazard or why would he have put it up in the first place.

Another... Remember a few years back two kids scaled a 20’ fence into the lions den at the Toronto Zoo and got mauled?

Yep..you guessed it......the zoo was charged and their insurance had to pay up. I know for a fact because a family member was involved from the insurance companies side.Everyone else is at fault except for the guilty person.

 

Yet  ANOTHER stupid move from our legal system. At a MINIMUM she should lose her nursing license.

Nurse who stole opioids from Kitchener care home must be rehired, compensated

An arbitrator last week ruled D.S.’s addiction was a disability. He also found that the nurse’s union established prima facie(correct until proved otherwise) discrimination and concluded it was wrong to not rehire her.

KITCHENER —A registered nurse who was fired from a long-term care home in Kitchener for repeatedly stealing opioids to feed her addiction must be rehired and compensated for "injury to dignity, feelings and self-respect," an arbitrator has ruled.

The nurse, identified in the ruling as D.S., was addicted to opioids when she stole narcotics from Sunnyside Home over a two-year period. She falsified medical records to make it look like she injected residents when she actually saved the drugs for herself.

An arbitrator last week ruled D.S.'s addiction was a disability. He also found that the nurse's union established prima facie(correct until proved otherwise) discrimination and concluded it was wrong to not rehire her. Sunnyside is owned by the Region of Waterloo.

 

"The evidence shows beyond any doubt that there is a connection or nexus between (her) substance use disorder and the adverse effect of termination of employment for violation of admittedly valid workplace rules," arbitrator Larry Steinberg said in the ruling.

"Compulsive behaviour and impaired judgment are symptoms of the mental illness of substance use disorder. They were manifested in this case ... by either no capacity or diminished capacity on the part of (D.S.) to comply with workplace rules prohibiting diversion of narcotics and falsification of medical records."

What happened to the Criminal Code and or the Narcotics Control Act?

When does personal responsibility and discipline enter the equation?

This Decision would seem to give employed junkies a get out of jail free card when they commit crimes in the workplace in support of their addictions.

Does the ruling only provide addicts with a free pass when it comes to theft and fraud in the workplace, or are assaults, robberies and worse justified as well?

If the workplace is to be a safe spot for addicts, should the law handle these people any differently when they commit the same crimes outside of the work environment?
