Federal Court dismisses damages claims, considers what is compensable under PIPEDA

Dan Michaluk has a good summary of a very recent case from the Federal Court in Stevens v. SNF Maritime Metal Inc., 2010 FC 1137, where a claim for damages was dismissed as essentially an end-run around other potential causes of action. In this case, for wrongful termination. The applicant had apparently defrauded his employer and another company breached PIPEDA by disclosing the applicant's information to the employer. The employee was terminated and claimed damages for the resulting loss.
