Last July, we drew your attention on the important decision rendered July 4, 2016 by Administrative Judge Claire Burdett of the Tribunal administratif du travail, Health and Safety Division. The decision clarified the guidelines, first adopted in April 2015, by the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (the "CNESST").

Since then, a review carried out under section 49 of the Act to establish the Administrative Labour Tribunal was requested by the CNESST on September 14, 2016. We will keep you informed of any developments in this matter
