Claudia Desjardins Bélisle practices in all areas of labour and employment law as well as administrative law. Her expertise focuses on unfair competition, complex dismissals, and individual and collective labour relations.

She regularly represents employers before courts and grievance arbitrators. She advises them on union certification process and collective agreements, and provides legal opinions. She also assists employers in negotiating amicable settlement of disputes.

She has pleaded before the Superior Court and Court of Appeal in several prominent cases and was involved in many major dismissals.

Claudia’s representative work includes successfully pleading the reimbursement of an amount in excess of $600,000 for medical services incurred outside of Quebec. This particular case was brought before the Tribunal administratif du Québec following a decision by the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec which refused to reimburse such expenses to a cancer patient who survived following an organ transplant operation performed outside of Quebec. She was also involved in the negotiation and settlement of one of Quebec’s longest labour conflicts in the last 30 years. This specific matter led her to plead several injunction proceedings and obtain a judgment to force the workers of a multinational corporation to vote on their employer’s final offers.
