Public servant slapper gets job back, $25Gs in damages

An Ottawa public servant who slapped his boss has been given both his job back, and a $25,000 award for damages to his human rights.

According to a Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board ruling, the government discriminated against Transport Canada engineer Naim Rahmani by ignoring evidence that his violence was related to a mental health problem — evidence first presented six months after the slap.

    Well it would have been racist to fire him for assaulting his boss so of course he is the one owed the damages and given his job back.

    I must admit that I am a bit shocked that the Wynne government didn’t intervene to demote the boss and give his job to Naim Rahmani.

    And why isn’t the perpetrator in jail for assault?

    • Beats me.

        Because he’s brown and most likely an Iranian.

      That would be racist.

  • The article in National Post described Rahmani as “a senior engineer in an office responsible for aircraft certification.” It’s comforting to know that the airline safety is controlled by a mentally ill Muslim.

    “His family physician, Dr. Stanislaw Maziarz, told the labour relations board that “someone who has such a specialized profession, earns an excellent salary, and is head of a family does not slap his supervisor without a psychiatric explanation behind it.”

    ASSHOLE is now a “psychiatric” condition???

    It’s madness.

    Read something like this and I wonder why I never took a job in the civil service, a ticket to ride, for sure.

    Any mohammedan crime is always attributed to ‘mental illness’, does that means all mohammedans have some kind of mental illness through out their lives??
