The Supreme Court of Canada will hear four appeals this week relating to labour relations (Quebec), a habeas corpus application in Alberta, a challenge in B.C. under the Official Languages Act, and a tax preparerâ€™s conviction of fraud in Toronto.
Labour relations: Modern Cleaning Concept Inc. is a franchisor serving commercial, industrial and institutional customers in the Quebec City region. Francis Bourque was an independent contractor who had been operating his own cleaning business when he signed a franchise agreement with Modern in 2014; he terminated the franchise agreement several months later but continued cleaning for the same customers, including one in the public sector, through his personal business. The ComitÃ© paritaire de lâ€™entretien dâ€™Ã©difices publics de la rÃ©gion de QuÃ©bec then brought an action claiming wages from the appellant on the ground that Bourque and his spouse had been employees and not independent contractors.
