Section 119

Recourses joined

The recourses of several employees against the same employer or against the directors of the same legal person may be joined in the same suit, whether it is instituted by the employees or by the Commission, and the total amount claimed determines the jurisdiction of the court, both in first instance and in appeal.

1979, c. 45, s. 119; 1992, c. 26, s. 16.

Interpretation

The jurisdiction of a Court is determined by the total of the amounts claimed by several employees, regardless of the amount of their individual claim.
