Strawberry or raspberry

Remember

Specify to the employee his wage rate and his method of remuneration: by the hour, by the week, according to yield, on commission or on another basis

Pay your employees the annual leave and statutory holiday indemnities, which can be paid for each day worked.

Establish how the payment of wages will be made: in cash, by cheque or by bank transfer.

Complete the simplified registration sheets intended for producers and strawberry and raspberry pickers (in French only) for employees who are in your employ for a period of less than five days

Complete your register of wages for people who work for you on a regular basis.

In case of disagreement

Discuss with your employee

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

If the initiative comes from your employee, keep in mind that the Act prohibits you from exercising any form of reprisals against him.

Get informed

Get in touch with the Service des renseignements by telephone or e-mail, if necessary.

By acting promptly, you will limit the risks of having a complaint filed against you 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 employee.

If the problem is not resolved, a complaint may be filed against you. In this case, be prepared to:

  • give your version of the facts
  • submit every document required by the inspector-investigator
  • pay the established claim, if any, failing which you may be subject to legal proceedings

A refusal to cooperate may result in penal proceedings and fines.
