multiple sclerosis in the workplace; discipline as hope to cure disability legally justified


I wish  to submit  a documented  newsworthy Candian superior court decision written in Frenchthat has not yet ciculated widely in English

 It shows that an English Canadian  university used forced unpaid leaves of absence for harmless  clerical  typos caught in time despite the cancelled accommodation of an  assisted  double check having been cancelled because it was too costly. 

The leaves were used as discipline in the 'HOPE' as an experiment to always get error free correct ordinary clerical office work.
