On May 31, 2018, the Assemblée nationale du Québec adopted a statute aimed at implementing certain recommendations of the Commission of Inquiry on the Awarding and Management of Public Contracts in the Construction Industry. The new Bill 152 therefore changes various legislative provisions in the Act Respecting Labour Relations, Vocational Training, and Workforce Management in the Construction Industry (Act R-20).
The new statute provides, notably:
- Better protection for informants and whistle-blowers
- Stronger powers for the CCQ to prevent under-the-table work
- Assurance of conservation of documents
- Declaration by representatives and directors
