Court Orders Employee to Repay $44.2K in Pay for Hours He Didn’t Work

A nuclear power plant operator sued an ex-radiation protection assistant for submitting time sheets and receiving payments for hours he didn’t work. The court sided with the operator and ordered the assistant to repay over $44.2K in ill-gotten gains + interest. The assistant appealed but the Court of Appeal refused to budge, upholding the lower court’s ruling and adding another $2.5K in legal costs to the assistant’s restitution bill [Mendes v. Nuvia Canada Inc., 2018 NBCA 73 (CanLII), Nov. 14, 2018].
