The Tribunal administratif du travail is an accessible labour law tribunal that provides quality services in a timely manner.

All our actions are guided by our core values: access to justice, impartiality, independence, respect and cooperation. 

The Tribunal sits in four divisions:

  • The labour relations division rules on proceedings pertaining to employment protection, freedom of association, bargaining rights and pay equity.
  • The occupational health and safety division hears proceedings filed by employers and workers to contest a decision rendered by Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail.
  • The essential services division ensures that essential services are maintained in order to protect the population’s health and safety during legal strikes and illegal pressure tactics.
  • The construction industry and occupational qualification division is responsible for hearing proceedings provided for in legislation concerning the construction industry.

The Tribunal encourages parties to use its conciliation service in an effort to settle their disputes amicably. If they do not reach a settlement, or if they do not wish to avail themselves of conciliation, the parties can be heard by an administrative judge, who will receive their evidence and their arguments before rendering a decision.
