MONTREAL (May. 18)
A court case believed to be the first of its kind here, accusing a firm of violating the Quebec “Act Respecting Discrimination in Employment,” was won here by a Jewish girl who charged that the firm had refused to hire her because she was Jewish.
According to the plaintiff, the girl was told, when she applied for a job as a junior typist, that the company did not hire Jews. The firm was convicted and fined $25. Another case, involving a Negro complainant, is still pending. The name of the Jewish girl was not revealed.
