Section 8 Other Events
Item 8.01 Other Events.
On August 12, 2009, Destiny Media Technologies, Inc.
("Destiny") was served with a statement of claim for wrongful dismissal from an
employee that moved to Mexico, claiming damages of approximately $181,000
($180,000 Canadian) plus stock options. This case was heard at a five day trial
ending in the fall of 2011.
On April 16, 2012, a judgment was received in Destiny's favor.
The judge found a number of reasons for dismissal with cause and dismissed the
claim for wrongful dismissal in its entirety. As the successful party, the judge
identified that Destiny is entitled to recover costs. The company intends to
file an application to receive double costs. Neither cost award has yet been
included as a receivable in Destiny's financial statements.
Following the plaintiff's move to Mexico, Destiny had held back
funds to cover potential personal withholding income tax obligations to either
Canada or Mexico. The judgment orders that Destiny pay one month's salary to the
plaintiff, which approximates this withholding. This amount has previously been
accrued in the financial statements.
