Former GoodLife Fitness worker, who alleged company was harassing and gaslighting him, has ‘frivolous’ claim tossed by OLRB

by HR Law Canada

A former GoodLife Fitness employee with a history of making complaints against his employer, including that it had tapped his phone and was stalking him, has had his latest application dismissed by the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB).

In the Aug. 24 ruling, the OLRB ruled the application filed by AH was “frivolous… and an abuse of the board’s processes.”

It also noted that AH had previously been determined to be a vexatious litigant by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and by the OLRB in respect to litigation involving a different entity, Orangetheory Fitness.

Current allegations

In the current application, AH sought “fair compensation for a constructive dismissal as a result of the employers’ actions and interest from severance pay.” Additionally, he requested an “immediate public inquiry into the allegations of the respondent and their representative.”

AH asserted that after refusing to sign a contract of employment with Goodlife Fitness, he was “criminally harassed” by the corporate responding party for filing complaints with the Board and the Ministry of Labour.

He also alleged Goodlife Fitness “tried to gaslight” him for whistleblowing in separate matters: the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the missing and murdered indigenous women and girls inquiry.

AH further claimed that Goodlife Fitness lied to the police about him, leading to his arrest and incarceration where he was poisoned. Lastly, he accused the company of “serious employment fraud and corruption” and “severe harassment” over a decade to prevent him from disclosing their involvement in a criminal organization working with foreign governments.

The Board dismissed this application, stating it was “frivolous, vexatious, and an abuse of the Board’s processes,” and noted that AH failed to provide material facts to support his claims.

Previous allegations and applications

This is not AH’s’ first application against Goodlife Fitness. Previously, he filed multiple applications against the company that were all dismissed. His prior allegations ranged from conspiracies to defraud him of legal fees to human rights violations.

Specifically, a 2015 case against Goodlife Fitness also involved AH making bald allegations of fraud, corruption, and cover-ups.

The Board noted that AH’s latest application seemed to merely repeat allegations and claims that have been previously brought before the Board and dismissed.

Context and documentation

AH appended documents ranging from the years 2012 to 2021 to his application. These documents include emails, court documents, and an affidavit appearing to relate to proceedings against the Attorney General of Canada.

However, the Board indicated that these documents offered almost no material facts to support his claims.

The Board’s latest decision reiterates its stance that AH’s applications appear to be an attempt to relitigate issues that have already been determined and dismissed.
