News : Fine for Sudden Shut Down of Laval Call Centre
Quebec, Nov 28, 2014 -- Two American investors are fighting the fines they've been slapped with in relation to the sudden shut down of a call centre in Laval in 2011.
Nearly 500 people lost their jobs without warning when IQT folded. Many were not paid for their final weeks of work.
Quebec law says a lay-off of that size obliges the company to give the government 16 weeks' notice.
Because IQT owners David and Alex Mortman gave no notice, they and their business have been fined nearly $50,000, plus court costs.
Their appeal will be heard on December 10.
