Interview Summary

Coventry Homes Inc. is being sued by five former employees for a combined $6.2 million due to a toxic work environment and failure to resolve complaints of harassment in the workplace. The claims filed on behalf of Jessica McNab, Caitlin Garrioch, Anne Guenther, Tessa Thomson and Kaitlyn Ross allege constructive dismissal as well as wrongful termination. Wallis Snowdon at CBC News spoke to the five plaintiffs to hear their stories and offer details on the ongoing claims.

Interview Notes

Aaron Levitin, a Calgary employment lawyer and Associate at Samfiru Tumarkin LLP, represents the five women previously employed at Coventry. Coventry has since let go of their sales director, Robin Nasserdeen, who appeared to be at the centre of the allegations of sexual assault and unsafe working conditions.
