154. Directors of a corporation are solidarily liable to the employees of a corporation for all debts not exceeding six months’ wages payable to each such employee for services performed for the corporation while they are directors of the corporation respectively.
However, a director is not liable unless the corporation is sued for the debt within one year after it becomes due and the notice of execution is returned unsatisfied in whole or in part or unless, during that period, a liquidation order is made against the corporation or it becomes bankrupt within the meaning of that expression in the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (R.S.C. 1985, c. B-3) and a claim for the debt is filed with the liquidator or the syndic.
