Overview

In 2006, successfully represented a Québec-based employer before the Supreme Court of Canada where the Supreme Court held that the notice (severance) provisions of the Civil Code of Québec were incompatible with a collective bargaining scheme. Consequently, upon the closure of the business, notice of termination beyond the minimum statutory obligations of the Labour Standards Act could not be claimed. Isidore Garon ltée v.
