CTV Ottawa – Dishwasher wins $21M case of Religious Discrimination

A former Miami hotel worker has been awarded more than $28 million because her boss repeatedly attempted to make her work Sundays despite her religious beliefs.

How far do employers need to go in order to accommodate employees where religion is concerned? Is it possible for a similar amount to be awarded in Canada?
