The obligation to perform the work with prudence and diligence (Art. 2088 of the Civil Code of Québec)

Work performance does not have to be perfect for an employee to fulfill his contractual obligations provided for in Art. 2088 of the Civil Code of Québec. An employee must, however, be prudent and diligent when performing the work. It is when there is negligence on the part of the employee that an employer can intervene.
