30.1. An employee who believes that he has been dismissed, suspended or transferred for any of the reasons set forth in paragraph a, b or c of section 30 and who wishes to assert his rights shall do so before the labour commissioner appointed under the Labour Code (chapter C-27) as though he were an employee dismissed, suspended or transferred by reason of his having exercised a right under that Code. Sections 15 to 20, 118 to 137, 139, 139.1, 140, 146 and sections 150 to 152 of the Labour Code apply, adapted as required.
Notwithstanding section 16 of the Labour Code, the time allowed for presenting a complaint to the labour commissioner-general shall be 45 days. If the complaint is presented within that time to the committee or the Minister, failure to present it to the labour commissioner-general cannot be invoked against the complainant. The labour commissioner-general shall send copy of the complaint to the committee concerned.
The committee may, with the consent of the parties, appoint a person who shall endeavour to resolve the complaint to the satisfaction of the parties.
