Judge awards $500,000 to woman abused by supervisor, employer also held vicariously liable

Determining that abusive treatment by a supervisor had caused post-traumatic stress and long-term depression that precluded a return to any kind of employment and that the employer was vicariously liable for everything that occurred, an Ontario judge awarded more than $500,000 damages jointly against the supervisor and the employer for intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress, mental suffering, and psycho-traumatic disability.
