154. Every employer who, without good cause shown, by discriminatory measures or reprisals, a change of conditions of employment, transfer, suspension or dismissal or any other sanction, prevents any member of the personnel from acting as an on-call firefighter or attempts to sanction the personnel member for having acted in that capacity, is guilty of an offence and is liable to a fine of $200 to $1,000, provided the firefighter has informed the employer of his or her duties as a firefighter and advises the employer in the event the firefighter must leave work precipitously or cannot report for work.
In addition, a person who feels aggrieved by a measure referred to in the first paragraph may exercise a recourse before the Commission des relations du travail established by the Labour Code (chapter C-27). The provisions applicable to a remedy relating to the exercise by an employee of a right arising out of the Code apply, with the necessary modifications.
