Former MIP executives launch lawsuits against McMaster, FLIT


Two former McMaster Innovation Park executives have reportedly launched lawsuits against McMaster University and First Longwood Innovation Trust (FLIT), alleging wrongful dismissal after they were terminated without cause in November 2023. The Spectator reports that a statement of claim filed by former MIP Chief Financial Officer Sandra Tran asserts that she is owed severance and performance payouts and alleges that the university interfered with her employment relationship with FLIT. McMaster has filed a motion of intent to defend against the lawsuit. Former MIP CEO Ty Shattuck is reportedly suing McMaster for $4.2M; McMaster’s statement of defence claims that Shattuck was manipulating his expense accounts and failed to secure necessary funding. The Spectator reports that none of the claims have been proven in court.
