Occupational health and safety complaints and contestations

Workers may file a complaint related to the Loi sur la santé et sécurité du travail (LSST) or the Loi sur les accidents du travail ou les maladies professionnelles (LATMP). They may also contest a temporary assignment or a CNESST decision. 

Workers may file an occupational health and safety complaint.
Workers and employers may contest a temporary assignment.
Workers and employers may contest a CNESST decision.
Reconsideration of a decision concerning occupational health and safety allows the CNESST, under certain conditions, to make a second decision and thus review a decision it has already rendered.
A pregnant or breastfeeding worker may contest the reassignment if it involves hazards or if the worker is unable to perform the tasks required in the reassignment.
If the employer or the worker disagree with the decision regarding an independent medical assessment, they may file an application for administrative review with the CNESST.
