A Tim Hortons spokesperson says the company learned about the allegations in the complaint filed late last week, and Van Den Bosch has not been with the chain since July. She says the company doesn’t condone any of the behaviours or allegations made in the complaint.

Eugene King, a lawyer with the B.C. Public Interest Advocacy Centre, says the workers were required to share rooms in two five-bedroom homes owned by Mr. Van Den Bosch, had no privacy, and according to their complaint had their rent doubled.
