23 June 2016

Filing Evidence From an Occupational Injury File Into the Record of a Claim for Psychological Harassment: Can It Be Done?

10 June 2016

On October 24, 2012, complainant Dalpé Claes filed a claim with Quebec’s occupational health and safety board, the Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (the “CSST”) for an occupational injury of a psychological nature.

That was the issue in a recent arbitration case in Quebec1. In his award, the arbitrator Gilles Ferland denied the grievance of the Syndicat de l’enseignement de Champlain (the “Union”) contesting the dismissal of a 4th grade primary school teacher with 30 years’ service (the “Teacher”).
