47. In no case may an employer or his agent dismiss, suspend or transfer an employee, practise discrimination or take reprisals against him or impose any other sanction upon him on the ground that the latter is summoned or has acted as a juror.
Any contravention of this section, in addition to being an offence against this Act, authorizes an employee to avail himself of his rights before a labour commissioner appointed under the Labour Code (chapter C-27) in the same manner as if it were a case of dismissal, suspension or transfer of an employee, of the practice of discrimination or the taking of reprisals against him or the imposition of any other sanction upon him by reason of the exercise by the employee of a right arising from the Labour Code. Sections 15 to 20, 118 to 137, 139, 139.1, 140, 146.1 and sections 150 to 152 of the Labour Code then apply, adapted as required.
