Dominic Fiset and Julie Samson have been named as administrative judges of Quebec's Administrative Labour Tribunal. Both are members of the labour law group of Langlois lawyers LLP.

The tribunal has jurisidiction over the province’s labour relations, occupational health and safety, essential services, and construction industry and occupational qualification divisions.

Before joining Langlois, Fiset, who holds the title of partner, was the legal counsel and industrial relations consultant for the Québec Federation of School Boards and advised board administrators from across the province on the application of collective agreements and provincial labour laws, grievance arbitration procedures and the prevention and resolution of grievances.

Samson is an associate at Langlois and has represented employers before the Administrative Labour Tribunal, particularly in matters involving occupational health and safety, due to her in-depth knowledge of the industrial accident compensation regime on the levels of financing, classification and indemnification. Before joining the firm, she worked for a provider of risk management, insurance, insurance brokerage and human capital consulting services, where she advised and represented employers on all aspects of occupational health and safety cases before the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) and the Administrative Labour Tribunal.

“The experience and exemplary professionalism of both Dominic Fiset and Julie Samson eminently qualify them to serve as judges of the Administrative Labour Tribunal. These prestigious nominations are a reminder of the depth of legal expertise of the members of our firm’s members. We wish them well in their new roles,” said Jean-François Gagnon, chief executive officer of the firm.
