Section 106

Frivolous complaint

The Commission may refuse to proceed with an inquiry if it finds that the complaint is frivolous or made in bad faith.

1979, c. 45, s. 106.

Interpretation

The Commission may refuse to proceed with the inquiry when:

  • the complaint is frivolous;

    The term frivolous refers to something that is unreliable, that is trivial.

  • the complaint is made in bad faith.

    It may involve a case where an employee files a complaint for vengeance and misleads the Commission as to the facts giving rise to the complaint.
