A nurse in the Eastern Townships is refused a job because she is overweight
The nurse Marie-Christine Lanoue wanted to come back to work after a break with her 4 children. She therefore applied to the CIUSSS de l'Estrie-CHUS and they refused her application. The reason given to the young woman is that her body mass index is too high. She tells us how it all unfolded: “The pre-employment technician said to me “Excuse me, Ms. Lanoue, you were refused employment because you are fat. But until then, if you lose weight, you can resume the hiring process.". Marie-Christine took all her courage to make this video and explain to us how she feels: “I felt disgusting. I felt very bad…. (crying) I felt abnormal. It is pure incompetence. I am in the process of complaints to several instances. ”. The management of the CIUSSS de l'Estrie-CHUS does not want to comment on the event, but they assure that they will review the nurse's file.
