Answer for Quebec – Layoff rules

From Alan:
Glenn,
Whether or not an employee has been brought back to work and a layoff has ended is a question of fact.
I’m not sure I could provide all the circumstances under which a return to work would not be recognized, but some of the following illustrate what I was getting at:

  • An employee returns to work and is immediately laid off, in circumstances where the “second” layoff was only a means to avoid the first layoff becoming a termination, by exceeding the 6 months allowed in Quebec.
  • There wasn’t any change in the employer’s circumstances that would indicate there would be something for the employee to do, on a return to work.
