Teachers in Contempt: Fined $500,000
The matter of the BC Public School Employers Assoc. v. BC Teachers Federation, 2005 BCSC 1490, was before the BC Supreme Court today for penalty determination. The BCTF was fined $500,000.00.
The case is an interesting read for the discussion on the difference between civil and criminal contempt and the outline of the factors used to determine the appropriate penalty for contempt of a Court order.
