Her experience as a research lawyer at the Association des professionnels de la construction et de l’habitation du Québec (APCHQ) allowed Ms. Mercier to develop extensive knowledge in dealing with cost apportionment between employers.

Taking advantage of section 329 of the LATMP: Learn to identify potential gains and to write a convincing application for sharing imputed costs

The cost of employment injuries occurring in your establishment and the contributions required of you by the CNESST can become a major financial concern for your company. Section 329 of the Act respecting industrial accidents and occupational diseases states that an employer may be entitled to sharing imputed costs in relation to an employment injury case if it is proven that the worker was “already handicapped when his employment injury appears”. Know how to take advantage of this section and learn how to assert your rights to limit the costs imputed to you as the employer by writing convincing cost sharing applications to the CNESST.
