Dalia Gesualdi-Fecteau, LLD, is a professor at the Faculty of Law and Political Science of the Université de Québec à Montréal (UQAM). She is a member of the Québec Bar and practiced law for several years at Québec’s Labour Standards Commission. Her research focuses on sociolegal issues relating to the effective implementation of labour law. In the past years, she has studied in what context temporary foreign workers mobilize their labour rights. She is also interested in the consequences of the porous frontiers between working time and personal time and seeks to document the impact of labour laws’ jurisdictional and administrative structure on the enforcement of this regulatory framework. She was part of the independent Expert Panel on Modern Federal Labour Standards mandated to study, consult and provide advice on 5 complex issues related to the changing nature of work. The report was submitted to the minister of Labour in June 2019.
As a co-investigator with On the Move, Dalia Gesualdi-Fecteau worked with the policy research component.
