A Surrey nursing home manager has been ordered to dish out thousands of dollars for discriminating against some immigrant workers.
Marissa Jurao and Belen Gardner filed a complaint with the BC Human Rights tribunal against Cherington Place supervisor Belinda Geldenhuys alleging discrimination on the basis of race and colour.
The workers said their manager made them feel demoralized, uncomfortable and scrutinized for their Filipino descent.
Alleged remarks included “Filipinos are gossipers and I don’t know if this is a cultural thing.”
The tribunal has ordered Geldenhuys to pay the women a combined $3500 in damages.
