LONDON, ONT. - A Chatham-Kent, Ont., woman has won $1.46 million in a lawsuit against retail giant Walmart.
Meredith Boucher, 42, sued the company, claiming store manager Jason Pinnock, 32, subjected her to verbal abuse and humiliation on the job from May to November 2009.
A Walmart lawyer, outside the Windsor, Ont., courtroom after Wednesday's jury decision, said the retailer will appeal the award.
"We're delighted for Ms. Boucher," her lawyer, Myron Shulgan, told reporters.
"She championed the cause for workers and indicated that corporations will be made to respond to improper treatment of employees."
