    Jean Samoisette v. IBM Canada Ltée

    On June 13, 2016, Judge François P. Duprat of the Quebec Superior Court ordered IBM Canada to pay more than $ 23,000,000 to a group of 449 employees and former employees of its Bromont plant. This judgment breaks new ground by recognizing that civil law continues to apply to a company that claims the right to unilaterally change its pension plan. Judge Duprat determined that IBM could not go back on a promise made to its employees to provide a bridge benefit on early retirement. Of the thousands of IBM employees affected by this change in several countries, only members of this class action have been compensated.
