171. To ensure that the Minister is able to exercise his or her new functions under this Act, persons who are employees of an agency, public institution or health and social services network employers’ association on 9 February 2015 and who are identified by the Conseil du trésor on the recommendation of the Minister become, on 1 April 2015 and without further formality, employees of the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux.
The total number of employees so transferred must not exceed 10% of the total number of persons, excluding those who exercise functions related to public health, who are agency employees on 25 September 2014.
Such employees are deemed to have been appointed in accordance with the Public Service Act (chapter F-3.1.1). For casual employees of health and social services agencies and public institutions, this presumption applies only to the unexpired portion of their contract.
The Conseil du trésor determines their remuneration and their classification and any other condition of employment applicable to them.
