Section 105


The Commission may also make an inquiry of its own initiative.

1979, c. 45, s. 105.


The Commission is not required to wait for a complaint to be filed before making inquiry.

This power is granted to the Commission in relation to its obligation to oversee the implementation and application of labour standards (see sections 5 and 39 ALS).

For example, the Commission could intervene in an undertaking for all of the employees in order to validate the application of pecuniary and administrative standards stipulated in the Act, even if no specific complaint has been filed by one of the employees.
