A cook who managed the Motor Inn at Haines Junction, Yukon, has been fined for sexually harassing teenage employees.

Yukon Human Rights adjudicators have found that Sid Quenneville verbally and physically harassed the girls in a sexual manner.

The two girls, aged 15 and 17, both worked after school at the Motor Inn.  They say the harassment forced them to quit their jobs.

Quenneville refused to take part in the human rights hearing but the board said evidence from the two teens was compelling enough to warrant sanctions.

Quenneville must pay each girl $5,000 in damages. He's also been ordered to compensate them a total of $2,500 for lost wages.
