Marilyne Dionne v. Commission scolaire des Patriotes, et al.

Case # 34854
Marilyne Dionne v. Commission scolaire des Patriotes, et al. (January 13, 2014)

The appellant was a casual substitute teacher working for the respondent school board. On September 24, 2006, the appellant learned that she was pregnant. The appellant was informed by the Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CSST) that she qualified for a maternity program. The School Board disagreed with the CSST’s decisions and challenged them before the Commission des lésions professionnelles. The Commission found Dionne was not an employee and her contracts lasted only as long as the assignments. At issue is whether the Quebec Court of Appeal erred in upholding the Commission des lésions professionnelles’s decision.
