As you may already know, on June 12, 2018 the Quebec government updated the Act respecting labour standards.
As mentioned in our blog published last April, changes were made aiming to improve the quality of life of employees and their families.
While some changes have been in effect since June 12, 2018, additional changes will be coming into effect on January 1, 2019.
Notably, employers will be obligated to adopt and implement policies regarding the prevention of psychological harassment and the management of complaints. Furthermore, employees will have the right to 3 weeks of paid leave after 3 years of service, rather than the previous 5 year requirement.
For more details about the main changes, the CNESST has published a summary, which can be found on their website: https://www.cnesst.gouv.qc.ca/salle-de-presse/campagnes/normes/Pages/campagne-normes.aspx?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIgdWo19eT3wIVglmGCh1ZXwymEAAYASAAEgIidfD_BwE
