The University of Manitoba has been ordered to pay $286K to former jazz professor Steve Kirby. Kirby left the school in 2017 after an internal investigation report found he repeatedly made inappropriate sexual comments and contact with a female student. Kirby filed a union grievance after he left his tenured position, and CBC states that an arbitrator found that the university violated Kirby’s privacy. CBC | Winnipeg Free Press (MB)
