You can get a refund for the meal expenses incurred while travelling?
In a recent decision, a worker was reimbursed for the purchase of pints of milk since, when travelling to attend his medical appointments, he consumed at least one pint of milk as a meal replacement. Obviously, the CNESST had initially refused to reimburse him, but in Labrecque and Centre de triage et révalorisation des matériaux secs (2019 QC TAT 3027), the judge concluded that after analyzing the law and reviewing some definitions, for example of the words meal and food, he came to the conclusion that milk is a substance that is reimbursable under the applicable regulations. He even states that this is an economical solution for the CNESST.
