COVID-19 – Port du masque médical en continu dans les locaux du Tribunal

Dans le contexte actuel de l’émergence des variants plus contagieux, l’Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ) recommande le port du masque médical (de procédure ou chirurgical) en tout temps dans les milieux de travail.

Dans le souci de protéger la santé tant des justiciables que de son personnel, et de maintenir ses activités au bénéfice de tous les citoyens, le Tribunal demande à toute personne accédant à ses locaux de porter en continu le masque médical qui lui sera fourni. Cette règle s’applique dans toutes les régions, peu importe la « zone de couleur » qui lui est attribuée.

Cette nouvelle mesure s’ajoute aux autres mesures préventives déjà mises en place au Tribunal, comme  la minimisation des contacts, la distanciation physique, l’hygiène des mains, le respect de l’étiquette respiratoire et la désinfection des surfaces. C’est en effet cette combinaison de mesures de prévention qui permet de limiter la transmission du virus. L’ajout de barrières physiques dans les salles d'audience est aussi une stratégie complémentaire.

Ainsi, le masque médical fourni par le Tribunal devra être porté en tout temps dans ses locaux, incluant les salles d’audience, et ce, même si la distance de 2 mètres est respectée ou que des plexiglas sont présents.

Merci de votre importante collaboration.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): Important Information

Updated on May 26, 2020

Please be informed that all hearings and conciliation sessions scheduled to take place at our offices are cancelled up to and including June 12, 2020, with the exception of the following urgent cases: urgent applications for an order pursuant to the Labour Code, stay applications, requests for changes to essential services, strike notices affecting public services and rights of refusal.

Although hearings and conciliation sessions will not be held at our offices until the above-mentioned date, the Tribunal’s various divisions may conduct pre-hearing conferences and hearings by telephone or by remote videoconference. Parties may also choose to waive their hearing and submit written representations instead, or request telephone mediation.

You can, however, ask the president of the Tribunal administratif du travail (the Tribunal) to maintain your hearing or conciliation session at our office if you believe that you may incur serious or irreparable harm on a personal, material or environmental level as a result of this measure. To do so, please send an email to communications@tat.gouv.qc.ca or a fax to 514 873-0211.

Limited access to our offices

Since March 23, 2020, access to Tribunal offices is limited to the persons summoned to urgent hearings or conciliation sessions. Although our offices are closed to the public, our staff is hard at work from home.

Ongoing cases

As we share the preoccupations expressed by parties and representatives, we have adapted certain work methods in order to be able to maintain our activities as much as possible, while complying with the rules inherent to the health emergency.

Since March 13, 2020, we have been working on solutions to help in the processing of certain ongoing cases, particularly the hearings that have been cancelled since March 16.

Here are a few of the solutions that we have implemented:

  • It is now easier to communicate with us. For example, documents faxed to us are now linked to emails that our staff can access remotely. For additional contact information, see the “More communication options” section below.                                                             
  • Our conciliators, in all of our divisions, are available to handle their cases. If the demand is significant, cases whose hearing date was cancelled recently will be prioritized.
  • If you would like the Tribunal to render a decision on the record instead of conducting a hearing, you must obtain the consent of the other party and then submit a request to the regional office in charge of your case.
  • Our support staff has been opening as many new records as possible and following up on cases from home.
  • All management and pre-hearing conferences are held by telephone whenever possible. We encourage participation, as telephone conferences will speed up the processing of cases when we are back to normal.
  • Our administrative judges are reviewing the adjourned cases. Where suitable, they will contact the parties in order to suggest a pre-hearing conference, written representations or a hearing by telephone or by remote videoconference. 
  • Regardless of whether a hearing date has been set, employers that have filed a contestation with the occupational health and safety division as the result of a cost assignment decision made further to an employment injury are encouraged to proceed through written representations, a telephone hearing or a remote videoconference hearing.
  • The same options are extended to all parties that that have filed an application for the review of a decision by the Tribunal, in all of our divisions.

More communication options

Your documents can now be submitted by email or by fax. An email address for each of our regional offices has been added to our contact us (Nous joindre – available in French only) page. Our Request for the Use of Videoconference at a Hearing, a Pre-Hearing Conference or a Management Meeting (DOCX, 65 ko) Ce lien s'ouvrira dans une nouvelle fenêtre has become available as a fillable form that can also be emailed to us.

In order to facilitate communication with our conciliators and labour relations officers, we have added their telephone numbers, by regional office, to the contact us (Nous joindre – available in French only) page of our website. If your case is with the occupational health and safety division, you can use our case historyCe lien s'ouvrira dans une nouvelle fenêtre online service (Historique d’un dossier – available in French only) to find out which conciliator to contact.

Since retrieving the mail delivered by Canada Post is complicated for the time being, we suggest you use our online services (Services en ligne – available in French only) to file your documents and forms. Similarly, any urgent correspondence should be emailed or faxed to the office in charge of your case.

Suspension of time limits

UPDATEOrder in Council No. 615-2020 (PDF, 44 ko) Ce lien s'ouvrira dans une nouvelle fenêtre, made by the Québec government on June 10, 2020, lifts the suspension of time limits for bringing proceedings before the Tribunal administratif du travail.

On March 21, 2020, Sonia LeBel, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Quebec, announced the suspension of certain time limits for administrative justice proceedings. This suspension applies retroactively to March 13, 2020, the start of the public health emergency.

As a result, all time limits for bringing proceedings before the Tribunal administratif du travail are suspended, with the exception of those provided in section 22 of the Labour Code. You may, nonetheless, file your proceedings within the legal time limits through our online services (Services en ligne – available in French only), by email or by fax.

The role of the TAT in relation to essential services

The jurisdiction of the essential services division of the Tribunal administratif du travail (the TAT) is limited to the essential services required to maintain public services in the context of a labour dispute (strike or lock-out).

It is not up to the TAT to determine which businesses offer “essential services” following Premier François Legault’s announcement of March 23, 2020, which aims to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
