“Une porte ouverte pour les employeurs” by Isabelle Massé, La Presse+

La Presse+ quotes Montreal lawyer Jean-François Cloutier in an article on the vaccine passport requirements.

Could this decision have an impact on others? Could it give the green light to other organizations and SMEs to require a vaccination certificate, without fear of recourse? “This is clearly a first decision that provides a comfort zone for an employer who wants to implement this,” says Jean-François Cloutier, a lawyer in the Labour, Employment and human rights group at Fasken.

“According to the logic of the arbitrator who weighs individual and collective rights, the objective is legitimate.”
