Companies are stimulated to provide employment for young graduates through the YEP; half their wages are subsidized by the state.
The company Rivière-du-Rempart offers training to young people and have recorded 70 of them under the YEP. Only problem: they would receive no salary!
These young people have been forced to put their signature on documents attesting have been paid.
But the finance minister got wind of this practice and has sought the opinion of the State Law Office to decide how to proceed.
Roland Dubois, head of YEP, in a statement to Radio Plus Wednesday, March 26, warns companies against any attempt to circumvent the laws.
