Labor Relations and Workplace Health and Safety


Labor Relations

Municipalities and employers in the public and private sectors are often confronted with labor relations problems. They need sound strategic advice in this field.

The lawyers in our Labor relations/Health and safety group are competent experts, able to provide you with effective legal advice reflecting your priorities.

We represent employers before arbritation tribunals and before the Commission des relations du travail du Québec. When necessary, we also intervene before tribunals to obtain injunctions or to request judicial review.

We also represent corporate executives, employees and municipal officials whose relationship with their employer has deteriorated.


Workplace Health and Safety

Workplace health and safety has become a major field of activity for employers. Municipalities, as well as all other employers wishing to benefit from their health and safety investments, must first ensure the efficiency of their claim management programs.

Managing your employees’ claims requires thorough acquintance with the process and your attorneys must act with tact. Particular attention should be given to group classification pricing, to the determination of the employee’s right to compensation and to the appeal procedures.

  • Requests for certification
  • Requests for decertification

  • Legal remedies in cases of strike
