Lior Samfiru on F*** Her Right in the P**** Firing

Men Being Interviewed

Hydro One has issued a statement saying it has fired one of its employees after he was found to have made crude remarks to CityNews reporter Shauna Hunt Sunday at a Toronto FC game.

Shawn Simoes and his friends yelled “F–k her right in the p—y” during Hunt’s live broadcast. The reporter then confronted Simoes, who called the use of FHRITP “hilarious.”

Does an employer have a legal right to fire an employee for cause if they engage in rude conduct outside of the workplace?

Employment Lawyer Lior Samfiru told Global News Radio 640 Toronto host John Oakley why employers need to think twice before leaping to a termination without severance pay.
