In Sulz v. Attorney General et al, 2006 BCSC 99, a female RCMP officer was awarded damages in the amount of $950,000.00 for harrassment she suffered at the hands of her supervisors. The damages are largely for psychological injury, past and future wage loss.

The case discusses jurisdictional issues and parallel actions under the Federal Human Rights Act and under the legislation governing the RCMP.

A word of caution: be nice to your employees.
