This part of the directive enhances and/or supplements Part II of the Code [http://laws.justice.gc.ca/en/showdoc/cs/L-2/bo-ga:l_II/en/en#anchorbo-ga:l_II] and should be read in that context.
17.1 Any employee may exercise his or her right of refusal to work. The proper redress mechanism established in accordance with section 128(7) of the Code is to be followed. The selection of the redress mechanism is revocable if the employer and employee agree, and the parties agree, that if no solution is found under the directive, either party can use the legislated process provided under the Code and its pursuant applicable regulations and request the intervention of an HRSDC-Labour health and safety officer.
17.2 No employer shall assign any other employee to use or operate the machine or thing, to work in that place, or to perform the activity until such time as an HRSDC-Labour health and safety officer has been notified of a continued refusal.
