This article posted on our partner site Mondaq.com deals with employment law in Quebec. It succinctly recaps the different types of employment relationships (i.e. a contract of employment versus a contract for services). When it comes to reasonable notice, it reveals Quebec relies on case law to calculate it as there are no set guidelines to determine what constitutes reasonable notice. A prominent theme reiterated in the article is that an employee is protected by human rights and privacy considerations which means that an employer’s right to medical exams, background checks, credit checks, psychological and/or aptitude tests are limited.
