Through a common agreement with all the unions, each staff member is mobilized to offer working arrangements allowing e-learning, where possible, as well as the maintenance of our administrative activities, in remote working mode. Only essential services are provided in person.
Access to buildings
Access to our facilities is restricted to individuals identified by management as delivering essential services.
All staff members are paid during working hours without additional compensation. Only hours worked outside normal working hours may be paid as overtime, according to the terms of the various collective agreements.
Each manager agrees on telework-family accommodation measures as required. The Information Resources Service is responsible for progressively providing the necessary support so that employees can be functional in carrying out their tasks remotely.
Each employee returning from a trip outside of Canada is required to observe a 14-day mandatory isolation period, as prescribed by Public Health. During this two-week period, the employee's salary is maintained.
The mandatory 14-day isolation period following return from travel is not paid by the employer if the staff member left Canada on or after March 15, 2020. The employee will be required to use vacation days or unpaid days during the period of isolation.
