Prohibited practices

 

Do you believe that you were the victim of a prohibited practice?

Remember

  • You have 45 days from the date of your dismissal or the measure taken against you to file a complaint with the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail
  • If your employer wants to force you to retire and imposes sanctions on you because you refuse, the time period is 90 days

In case of disagreement

Check your rights

Make sure that you know your rights well by consulting the section What the Act says.

Meet with your employer

Clarify the situation and, wherever possible, resolve the problem.

This approach often allows you and your employer to settle the problem and to avoid having to file a complaint with the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail. It is in your interest and that of your employer.

If you prefer to write to your employer, this model letter (Word, 25 Ko) can help you inform him of your concerns.

Get informed

Obtain more information and, where applicable, file a complaint

If necessary, get in touch with the Service des renseignements for more information.

If the steps taken do not produce the desired results, file a complaint within the prescribed time periods to avoid losing your rights.
