After several harassment lawsuits being filed against the company in the United States, complaints have crossed the Northern borders. Former CareerBuild sales rep of Toronto, Pablo Muzera, has filed against the job board following "wrongful termination and harassment" and is owed $150,000 in backpay and bonuses that he never saw.
If that sounds low, Canada’s laws restrict the amount workers can be rewarded in such cases. The suit says Muzlera was paid 150,000 annually and is entitled to six months of pay in lieu of notice.
At the heart of the lawsuit is Ryan Lazar, who served as Muzlera’s boss during his time at CareerBuilder. Lazar was head of sales in Canada from September 2015 until June 2018. He started as an account executive with the company in 2011. He’s now a national sales director in Canada for Qualtrics.
Muzlera alleges Lazar routinely harassed him. Specifically, Muzlera claims Lazar made insulting and derogatory comments about taking too many sick days. In one instance, Muzlera called in sick and Lazar said, “seems to be a Monday trend.”
Another claim says Lazar changed Muzlera’s job functions, including “not allowing him to work from home occasionally and no longer allowing him to meet face-to-face with clients as he always had, and as his colleagues continued to do.”
