An investigation by Quebec's labour standards board has concluded the Church of Scientology of Quebec owes 62 employees of the Quebec City branch more than $750,000 in unpaid wages and vacation pay.

The board, known by its French acronym CNESST, has filed documents in Quebec Superior Court, asking the court to order the organization to pay the wages owed, plus interest and indemnities, for a total of more than $900,000.

The CNESST opened its investigation last June, after a report by Radio-Canada's investigative program Enquête found that church workers were earning far less than Quebec's minimum wage.
