LJT pleads and wins an important judicial review
On December 15, 2009, the Superior Court permitted judicial review and revoked a judgment rendered by the Commission de reconnaissance des associations d’artistes et des associations de producteurs (CRAAAP). Since then, CRAAAP’s jurisdictional functions have been transferred to the Commission des relations du travail (CRT).
Ms. Lyne Robichaud, from Legault Joly Thiffault’s Advertising and entertainment law, intellectual property group, played an important part in the debate and pleading that took place before the Superior Court.
The issues debated pertained to the definition of a negotiation sector and the exclusion of employees from the application of the Act respecting the professional status and conditions of engagement of performing, recording and film artists. The stakes were high for the parties in the proceedings as well as for all the players in this specific field.
A motion to appeal will be presented on March 8, 2010.
