Original decision of adjudicator was owed degree of deference

Appellant was federal employee who filed grievance over his dismissal. Grievance was dismissed and employee applied for judicial review. Application was dismissed. Employee sought to have appeal court set aside dismissal, and grant judicial review. Employee sought to introduce new evidence in doing so. Appeal dismissed. Reasonableness was proper standard of review. Original decision of adjudicator was owed degree of deference, as it involved home statute. Decision of adjudicator was supported by facts and jurisprudence. Interlocutory decisions made against employee were not appealed and were now final. These decisions could not be subject of appeal.
Teti v. Canada (Attorney General) (Mar. 14, 2016, F.C.A., Noël C.J., David Stratas J.A., and Rennie J.A., A-481-14) Decision at 246 A.C.W.S. (3d) 680 was affirmed. 265 A.C.W.S. (3d) 278.
