CHAPTER III – OF THE LETTING OUT OF LABOUR OR INDUSTRY

Art. 55. Labour may be let out in three ways:
1st. Labourers may hire their services to another person;
2dly. Carriers and watermen hire out their services for the conveyance either of persons or of goods and merchaudizes;
3dly. Workmen hire out their labour or industry to make buildings or other works.

 

SECTION I – OF THE HIRING OF SERVANTS AND WORKMEN

Art. 56. A man can only hire out his services for a certain limited time or for the performance of a certain enterprise.

Art. 57. A man is at liberty to dismiss a hired servant attached to his person or family, without assigning any reason for so doing. The servant is also free to depart without assigning any cause.

Art. 58. Labourers who hire themselves out to serve on plantations or to work in manufactures, have not the right of leaving the person who has hired them, nor can they be sent away by the proprietor, until the time has expired during which they had agreed to serve, unless good and just causes can be assigned.

Art. 59. If, without any just ground of complaint, a man should send away a labourer whose services he has hired for a certain time, before that time has expired, he shall be bound to pay said labourer, the whole of the salaries which he would have been entitled to receive, had the full term of his services arrived, whether said labourer was hired by the month or by the year.

Art. 60. But if, on the other hand, a labourer, after having hired out his services, should leave his employer, before the time of his engagement has expired, without having any just cause of complaint against said employer, the labourer shall then forfeit all the wages that may be due to him and shall moreover be compelled to repay all the money he may have received either as due for his wages in advance thereof on the running year or on the time of his engagement.

 

SECTION II – OF CARRIERS AND WATERMEN

Art. 61. Carriers and watermen are subject, with respect to the safe keeping and preservation of the things entrusted to them, to the same obligations and duties which are imposed on tavern-keepers in the title of deposit and sequestration.

Art. 62. The price of passage agreed for be paid by a woman, for going by sea from one country to another, shall not be increased, in case the woman has a child during the voyage, whether her pregnancy was known or not by the master of the ship.

Art. 63. Carriers and watermen may be liable to the loss for damage of the things entrusted to their care unless they can prove that such loss or damage has been occasioned by accidental and uncontrolable events.

Art. 64. Persons hiring out carriages, and masters of ships and boats, are also subject to peculiar regulations which have the force of law between them and the parties with whom they transact.

 

SECTION III – OF PLOTS FOR BUILDINGS AND OTHER WORKS

Art. 65. To build by a plot or to work by the job, is to undertake a building or a work for a certain stipulated price.

Art. 66. A person who undertakes to make a work, may agree either to furnish his work and industry alone, or to furnish also the materials necessary for such a work.

Art. 67. When the undertaker furnishes the materials for the work, if said work be destroyed in whatever manner it may happen, previous to its being delivered to the owner, the loss shall be sustained by the undertaker, unless the said proprietor be in default for not receiving it, though duly notified to do so.

Art. 68. When the undertaker only furnishes his work and industry, should the thing be destroyed, the undertaker is only liable, in case the loss has been occasioned by his fault.

Art. 69. In the case mentioned in the preceding article, if the thing mentioned is destroyed  by accident and not owing to any fault of the undertaker, before the same be delivered and the owner be in default for not receiving it, the undertaker shall not be entitled to his salaries, unless the destruction be owing to the badness of the materials used in the building.

Art. 70. If the work is composed of detached pieces or made at the rate of so much a measure, it may be delivered separately and that delivery shall be presumed to have taken place, if the proprietor has paid to the undertaker, the price due for the parts of the work which have already been completed.

Art. 71. If a building which an architect or other workman has undertaken to make by the job, should fall to ruin either in whole or in part, on account of the badness of the workmanship, the said architect or undertaker shall bear the loss, if the building falls to ruin in the course of ten years, if it be a stone or brick building and of five years if it be built in wood or with frames filled with bricks.

Art. 72. When an architect or other workman has undertaken the building of a house by the job, according to a plat agreed on between said architect and the proprietor of the ground, he cannot claim an increase of the price agreed on, on the plea of the original plat having been changed and extended, unless he can prove that such changes have been made in compliance with the wishes of the proprietor.

Art. 73. The proprietor has the right to cancel at pleasure the bargain he has made, even in case the work has already been commenced, by compensating the undertaker for all the trouble and expences he has been at, as well as for the profits he would have made, had the work been suffered to proceed.

Art. 74. Contracts for hiring out work, are cancelled by the death of the workman, architect or undertaker, unless the proprietor should consent that the work should be continued by the heir or heirs of the architect, or by workmen employed for that purpose, by said heir or heirs.

Art. 75. The proprietor is only bound, in the former case, to pay to the heirs of said undertaker, the value of the work that has already been done and that of the materials already prepared, proportionably to the price agreed on, in case said work and materials may be useful to him.

Art. 76. The undertaker is responsible for the deeds of the persons employed by him.

Art. 77. If an undertaker fails to do the work he has contracted for, or if he does not execute it in the manner and at the time he has agreed to do it, he shall be liable to pay all the losses that may ensue from his non compliance with his contract.

Art. 78. The masons, carpenters and other workmen who have been employed in the construction of a building or other works undertaken by the job, have their action against the proprietor of the house on which they have worked, only for the sum which may be due by him to the undertaker at the time their action is commenced.

Art. 79. Masons, carpenters, black smiths and all other artificers who undertake work by the job, are bound by the provisions contained in the present section, for they may be considered as undertakers each in his particular line of business.

CHAPITRE III - DU LOUAGE D'OUVRAGE ET DE SERVICE

Art. 55. Le louage a trois objets principaux:
1°. Celui des gens de travail, qui se louent au service de quelqu'un;
2°. Celui des voituriers, tant par terre que par eau, qui se chargent du transport des personnes ou marchandises;
3°. Les devis, ou marchés d'ouvrages.

 

SECTION I - DU LOUAGE DES DOMESTIQUES ET OUVRIERS

Art. 56. On ne peut engager ses services qu'à tems, ou pour une entreprise déterminée.

Art. 57. Les domestiques attachés, à la personne du maître, ou au service des maisons, peuvent être renvoyés en tout tems sans expression de cause, et peuvent de même quitter leurs maîtres.           

Art. 58. Les personnes qui ont loué leurs services sur les habitations, ou dans toutes autres manufactures pour y être employées aux travaux qui s'y font, ne peuvent, ni quitter le propriétaire auquel ils se sont loués, ni être renvoyées par eux avant le tems convenu, que pour cause grave.           

Art. 59. Si hors le cas de cause grave, le propriétaire renvoie la personne qui lui à loué ses services, ainsi qu'il est marqué en l'article précédent, avant l'expiration du tems convenu, il doit lui payer le salarie de l'année ou du tems pour lequel il l'avait loué.           

Art. 60. Si c'est au contraire la personne qui a engagé ainsi ses services, qui quitte le propriétaire, sans cause légitime, il perdra le salaire pour le tems qui s'est écoulé jusqu'alors sur son engagement, ou sera obligé de restituer au propriétaire ce qu'il aura reçu de lui d'avance sur l'année courante, ou sur le tems de l'engagement.

 

SECTION II - DES VOITURIERS PAR TERRE ET PAR EAU

Art. 61. Les voituriers par terre et par eau sont assujettis, pour la garde et conservation des choses qui leur sont confiées, aux mêmes obligations que les aubergistes, dont il est parlé au titre du dépôt et du séquestre.           

Art. 62. Le prix du passage, par mer, d'une femme, d'un pays à un autre, n'augmente pas, quoiqu'elle accouche dans la traversée, soit que le maître sut, ou ignorat, qu'elle fut enceinte.           

Art. 63. Les voituriers sont responsables, en outre, de la perte et des avaries des choses qui leur son confiées, à moins qu'ils ne prouvent, qu'elles ont été perdues ou avariées par cas fortuit, ou force majeure.           

Art. 64. Les personnes qui tiennent des voitures publiques, et les maîtres des barques et navires, sont assujettis à des règlemens particuliers, qui font loi entre eux et les personnes avec lesquelles ils ont traité.

 

SECTION III - DES DEVIS ET MARCHÉS

Art. 65. On appelle devis, marché ou prix fait, l'entreprise d'un ouvrage, moyennant un prix déterminé.           

Art. 66. Lorsqu'on charge quelqu'un de faire un ouvrage, on peut convenir qu'il fournira seulement son travail ou son industrie, ou bien qu'il fournira aussi la matière.           

Art. 67. Si, dans le cas où l'ouvrier fournit la matière, la chose vient à périr, de quelque manière que ce soit, avant d'être livrée, la perte en est pour l'ouvrier, excepté que le maître ne fut en demeure de recevoir la chose.           

Art. 68. Dans le cas, où l'ouvrier fournit seulement son travail ou son industrie, si la chose vient à périr, l'ouvrier n'est tenu, que de sa faute.           

Art. 69. Si, dans le cas de l'article précédent, la chose vient à périr, quoique sans aucune faute de la part de l'ouvrier, avant que l'ouvrage ait été reçu, et sans que le maître fut en demeure de le vérifier, l'ouvrier n'a point de salarie à réclamer, excepté que la chose n'ait péri par le vice de la matière.           

Art. 70. S'il s'agit d'un ouvrage à plusieurs pièces, ou à la mesure, la vérification peut s'en faire par parties; et elle est censée faite, si le maîlea paye l'ouvrier, à proportion de l'ouvrage fait.           

Art. 71. Si, l'édifice construit à prix fait, périt, en tout ou en partie, par le vice de la construction, l'architecte, ou entrepreneur, en est responsable pendant dix ans, pour les maisons en briques, et pendant cinq ans, pour les maisons en bois ou colombage.           

Art. 72. Lorsqu'un architecte, ou entrepreneur, s'est chargé de la construction, à forfait, d'un bâtiment, d'après un plan arrêté, et convenu avec le propriétaire du sol, il ne peut demander une augmentation de prix, sous prétexte de changemens ou d'augmentations faits, s'il ne prouve que ces changemens, ou augmentations, ont été autorisés par le propriétaire.           

Art. 73. Le maître peut résilier, par sa seule volonté, le marché à forfait, quoique l'ouvrage soit déjà commencé, en dédommageant l'entrepreneur, de toutes ses dépenses, de tous ses travaux et de tout ce qu'il aurait pu gagner dans cette entreprise.           

Art. 74. Le contrat de louage d'ouvrage est dissous, par la mort de l'ouvrier, architecte ou entrepreneur, à moins que le propriétaire ne consente d'accepter, pour la continuation de l'ouvrage, l'héritier de l'entrepreneur, ou l'ouvrier que cet héritier lui présente.           

Art. 75. Mais le propriétaire est tenu, dans le première cas, de payer, en proportion du prix porté par la convention, à leur succession, la valeur des ouvrages faits, et celle des matériaux préparés, lors seulement que ces travaux, ou ces matériaux peuvent lui être utiles.           

Art. 76. L'entrepreneur répond du fait des personnes qu'il emploie.

Art. 77. Si l'ouvrier ne fait pas l'ouvrage convenu, ou s'il ne le fait pas tel, et dans le tems qu'il l'a promis, il est condamné à tous les dommages intérêts qui peuvent résulter de l'inexécution de son obligation.           

Art. 78. Les maçons, charpentiers et autres ouvriers, qui ont été employés à la construction d'un bâtiment, ou d'autres ouvrages faits à l'entreprise, n'ont d'action contre celui pour lequel les ouvrages ont été faits, que jusqu'à concurrence de ce dont il se trouve débiteur envers l'entrepreneur, au moment où leur action est intentée.           

Art. 79. Les maçons, charpentiers et serruriers, et autres ouvriers qui font directement des marchés à prix fait, sont astreints aux règles prescrites dans la présente section: car ils sont entrepreneurs dans la partie qu'ils traitent.
