CHAPTER IX 
MISCELLANEOUS, TRANSITIONAL AND FINAL PROVISIONS

175. Unless the context indicates otherwise, in any other Act, regulation, order, order in council, proclamation, administrative remedy, judicial proceeding, judgment, ordinance, contract, agreement, accord or other document,

 (1) a reference to the Ministère du Revenu is a reference to the Agence du revenu du Québec;

 (2) a reference to the Deputy Minister of Revenue or an Assistant Deputy Minister of Revenue is a reference to the president and chief executive officer of the Agence du revenu du Québec or one of its vice-presidents, respectively;

 (3) a reference to a public servant or an employee of the Ministère du Revenu is a reference to an employee of the Agence du revenu du Québec; and

 (4) a reference to the Act respecting the Ministère du Revenu (chapter M-31) or one of its provisions is a reference to the Tax Administration Act (chapter A-6.002) or the corresponding provision of that Act.

2010, c. 31, s. 175.

176. Proceedings to which the Minister of Revenue, the Deputy Minister of Revenue or the Ministère du Revenu is a party are continued by the Agency without continuance of suit.

2010, c. 31, s. 176.

177. The Agence du revenu du Québec established by section 1 replaces the Ministère du Revenu.

For the purposes of the Act to promote workforce skills development and recognition (chapter D-8.3), the Agency is not a new employer.

2010, c. 31, s. 177.

178. The policies, directives, standards and rules applicable within the Ministère du Revenu and subsequent amendments become, with the necessary modifications, those of the Agency. If such a policy, directive, standard or rule provides for the authorization or decision of a third party, the authorization or decision of the Agency is sufficient in matters within its jurisdiction.

2010, c. 31, s. 178.

179. The Agency may use, for a period of 18 months beginning 1 April 2011, a list of the candidates declared qualified established before that date by the Chair of the Conseil du trésor in accordance with the Regulation respecting the holding of competitions (chapter F-3.1.1, r. 6), to which the Ministère du Revenu would have had access.

2010, c. 31, s. 179.

180. The person holding the position of Deputy Minister of Revenue on 31 March 2011 and those holding the position of Assistant Deputy Minister of Revenue on that date become, respectively, president and chief executive officer and vice-presidents of the Agency on the same conditions until they are appointed as such or replaced by the Government.

During that time, they are, if applicable, on leave without pay from the public service.

2010, c. 31, s. 180.

181. Subject to the applicable conditions of employment, any person who, on 31 March 2011, is in the employ of the Ministère du Revenu or is a public servant in the legal directorate or the public relations and communications directorate of that department becomes an employee of the Agency.

2010, c. 31, s. 181.

182. The employees of the Agency continue to be represented by the certified associations representing them on 31 March 2011 and the collective agreements in force at that date, or the provisions in lieu of a collective agreement, continue to apply until their date of expiry.

A person who becomes an employee of the Agency after 31 March 2011 is governed by the same conditions of employment as those applicable to the group of employees to which he or she belongs.

2010, c. 31, s. 182.

183. Any employee who, on the date he or she was transferred to the Agency under section 181, was a public servant with permanent tenure may apply for a transfer to a position in the public service or enter a promotion-only qualification process in accordance with the Public Service Act (chapter F-3.1.1).

Section 35 of the Public Service Act applies to an employee who participates in such a promotion-only qualification process.

2010, c. 31, s. 183; 2013, c. 25, s. 34.

184. An employee transferred to the Agency under section 181 may apply for a transfer to a position in the public service or enter a promotion-only qualification process in accordance with the Public Service Act (chapter F-3.1.1) if, on 31 December 2010, the employee is a public servant, other than a casual employee, who has not obtained permanent tenure and, at the time of the transfer or promotion, has successfully completed the probationary period required under section 13 of the Public Service Act.

The period served as an employee of the Agency is taken into account in calculating the length of the probationary period and the period of continuous employment required for the purposes of section 14 of the Public Service Act.

Section 35 of the Public Service Act applies to an employee who participates in such a promotion-only qualification process.

2010, c. 31, s. 184; 2013, c. 25, s. 34.

185. An employee transferred to the Agency under section 181 may apply for a transfer to a position in the public service or enter a promotion-only qualification process in accordance with the Public Service Act (chapter F-3.1.1) if the employee obtains the status of temporary employee following the first operation carried out under a letter of agreement between the Chair of the Conseil du trésor and the Syndicat de la fonction publique du Québec or the Syndicat de professionnelles et professionnels du gouvernement du Québec to allow certain casual or seasonal employees to obtain that status, to the extent that the letter of agreement becomes applicable.

However, at the time of the transfer or promotion, the employee must have successfully completed the probationary period required under section 13 of the Public Service Act.

The period served as an employee of the Agency accumulated after obtaining the status of temporary employee in accordance with the first paragraph is taken into account in calculating the length of the probationary period and the period of continuous employment required for the purposes of section 14 of the Public Service Act.

Section 35 of the Public Service Act applies to an employee who participates in such a promotion-only qualification process.

2010, c. 31, s. 185; 2013, c. 25, s. 34.

186. An employee referred to in any of sections 183 to 185 who applies for a transfer or enters a promotion-only qualification process may apply to the Chair of the Conseil du trésor for an assessment of the classification that would be assigned to the employee in the public service. The assessment must take account of the classification that the employee had in the public service on the date of transfer, as well as the years of experience and the level of schooling attained while in the employ of the Agency.

If an employee is transferred into the public service under any of sections 183 to 185, the deputy minister or chief executive officer whom the employee comes under must assign to the employee a classification compatible with the assessment provided for in the first paragraph.

If an employee is promoted under any of sections 183 to 185, the employee must be given a classification on the basis of the criteria set out in the first paragraph.

2010, c. 31, s. 186; 2013, c. 25, s. 34.

187. If some or all of the operations of the Agency are discontinued, an employee referred to in section 181 is entitled to be placed on reserve in the public service with the same classification the employee had before the date on which the employee was transferred to the Agency, if the employee was a public servant with permanent tenure on the date of the transfer.

In such a case, the Chair of the Conseil du trésor determines the employee's classification on the basis of the criteria set out in the first paragraph of section 186.

2010, c. 31, s. 187.

188. A person referred to in section 181 who, in accordance with the applicable conditions of employment, refuses to be transferred to the Agency is assigned to the Agency until the Chair of the Conseil du trésor is able to place the person in accordance with section 100 of the Public Service Act (chapter F-3.1.1). A person placed on reserve under the first paragraph of section 187 remains in the employ of the Agency until the Chair of the Conseil du trésor is able to place the person in accordance with section 100 of the Public Service Act.

The first paragraph applies, with the necessary modifications, to a person holding a legal management position.

For the purposes of this section, the employment conditions of a person holding a legal management position that pertain to a right to refuse a transfer are the same as those of the other management personnel.
