A company was forced to pay a woman for the time she was not working after she was allegedly drunk at work.

Linda Horrocks of Canada, who was fired for being drunk, won a court case against her former employer, claiming that she was discriminated against because she was an alcoholic.

The Northern Regional Health Authority in Winnipeg, was ordered to pay Horrocks three years worth of back pay and an additional $10,000 for the loss of dignity.

Horrocks was fired after her bosses said that she was intoxicated at a grocery store while talking to her manager on her phone.

One of Horrocks’ co-workers also told her bosses that she was drunk at work.

Horrocks decided to take the company to court after filing a complaint with the Manitoba Human Rights Commission.

She said that being an alcoholic is a disability and she was discriminated against.

Judge Sherri Walsh agreed. The Canadian Human Rights Commission considers alcoholism a disability and therefore, they sided with the woman.

“I find that the health authority failed to establish that it had accommodated Horrocks’ special needs associated with her disability,” Walsh said in court.

Horrocks now hopes to get her job back.
