THE CLASS ACTION IN SUMMARY
The motion for authorization was accepted by the Superior Court on April 3rd, 2018.
The action alleges that the Government of Canada has failed to fulfil its obligations towards its employees during the implementation of the Phoenix pay system and in its management of the problems that ensued. The action seeks compensation for the employees affected by the implementation of the Phoenix pay system starting on February 2016.
The status of included members was limited by the Court's judgment. Employees who have a right to file a grievance under section 208 of the Federal Public Sector Labor Relations Act were excluded from the Class. This affects both unionized and non-unionized employees. People excluded from the current Class definition or who have the right to grieve should file a grievance to preserve their rights.
TO STAY INFORMED
Persons included in the Class definition do not need to register or subscribe in order to join the Class.

Please note that we cannot commit ourselves to analyze every case individually nor to give you legal advice regarding this matter. It is impossible for us to guarantee that a particular person will be compensated. The issue of the case and the determination of the group will depend on the decision of the court. The group might be changed in the course of the proceedings or by judgment of the Court. Such a change could exclude someone from the group.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
On May 3rd, 2018, we filed to appeal the part of the authorization judgment which has excluded employees who have access to the grievance procedure under section 208 of the Public Sector Labour Relations Act.
After the appeal, the case will be readied for trial and heard on the merits. The process could take between 18 months and 3 years, according to our estimates.
