(Quebec) Former Legal Director of Sainte-Brigitte-de-Laval, Sylvain Déry, will oppose Wednesday at the request of the City, which would benefit from additional time before the decision applies the Labour Relations Commission (CRT) ordering that he be reinstated to his post after being fired in February 2014.
“We challenged because the Commissioner ruled that my dismissal was illegal measure and that I should be reinstated within eight days,” said Sylvain Déry Tuesday to Sun, adding that neither he nor his lawyer, Mr. Jean-François Dolbec, had received a call from the City since the judgment of the CRT.
On July 27, the CRT gave reason down the line to Mr. Déry and former CEO Gaétan Bussières, who challenged their dismissals. Considering that the dismissal of Mr. Déry was illegal, the agency had ordered his reinstatement in eight days while the City benefited from 30 days to reinstate Mr. Bussières, whose dismissal was groundless.
Analysis of the decision
That’s because she wants to have more time to analyze the decision and scenarios that are available to it regarding MM. Bussières Déry and the City of Sainte-Brigitte-de-Laval last week filed a safeguard order in the Superior Court for the period of 30 days applies equally in the case of Mr. Déry than in Mr. Bussières.
If the City fails to obtain a longer period, the reinstatement of Mr. Déry will take place following the decision of the judge hearing this exceptional resort. The city administration has already mentioned three possible scenarios in the case of two former executives, namely the reintegration negotiation or judicial review.
