C-11 - Charter of the French language

Full text
137.1. Workers’ representatives on the francization committee or a subcommittee may, without loss of pay, absent themselves from work for the time required to attend meetings of the committee or subcommittee and to perform any committee or subcommittee task. They shall be deemed to be working and shall be remunerated at the normal rate during that time.
In no case may an employer not remunerate or dismiss, lay off, demote or transfer a worker for the sole reason that the worker took part in committee or subcommittee meetings or tasks.
Any worker who feels aggrieved by an action that is prohibited by the second paragraph may exercise the rights set out in the second or third paragraph of section 45, as the case may be.
