Liability Admissions in Sexual Abuse Claims

An article written by David Rogers, entitled “Liability admissions in sexual abuse claims“, has been published by Canadian Employment Law Today.

In the article, David says: “the Ontario Court of Appeal has confirmed that the standard for an award of punitive damages is very high. There must be egregious conduct and an independent actionable wrong. Requiring a plaintiff to prove their case, in and of itself, does not rise to that standard”.
