Recourse to the Tribunal administratif du travail

The Tribunal administratif du travail (TAT) rules on recourses exercised under statutes in the fields of employment and labour relations, including Act R-20.

Disputes related to coverage of work

Section 19 of Act R-20 and the Regulation Respecting the Application of Act Respecting Labour Relations, Vocational Training and Workforce Management in the Construction Industry define the Act’s fields of application and exclusion.

Under section 21 of Act R-20, the TAT hears and rules on disputes related to problems of interpretation and coverage of work.

Consult the list of cases underway at the TAT or for which a ruling has been made during the last six months.

Trade jurisdiction disputes

Upon request, the TAT intervenes to hear and rule on trade jurisdiction disputes among different trades, specialties, or occupations. The TAT may also be asked to review a decision made by a Trade Jurisdiction Dispute Resolution Committee.

Other responsibilities

The TAT is also responsible for:

  • Reviewing orders of suspension of work issued by the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ)
  • Reviewing rejections concerning qualification or the issuance of a competency certificate by the CCQ or Emploi-Québec
  • Recourses for decisions by the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ), the Corporation des maîtres électriciens du Québec (CMEQ), or the Corporation des maîtres mécaniciens en tuyauterie du Québec (CMMTQ) concerning the issuance, renewal, modification, suspension, or cancellation of a construction contractor licence
