Dauga v. Le Parc aux Cerfs

An employee who had asthma that was aggravated by smoke in the restaurant where she once worked brought an action against the employer for failure to comply with the obligation to protect employees' safety and for wrongful dismissal.  The court ruled in favor of the employee, holding that the employer did not adequately comply with smoke-free laws and therefore neglected its employee safety obligations.
