Section 73

Prohibition

Employers are prohibited from replacing a leave contemplated in section 67, 68 or 69 by a compensatory indemnity, unless a special provision is contained in a collective agreement or decree.

Compensatory indemnity

At the request of the employee, the third week of leave may, however, be replaced by a compensatory indemnity if the establishment closes for two weeks on the occasion of the annual leave.

1979, c. 45, s. 73; 1982, c. 58, s. 58.

Interpretation

The annual leave cannot be replaced by a compensatory indemnity, except in the following cases:

  1. where a collective agreement or a decree has a specific provision to that effect;
  2. where the establishment closes for two weeks on the occasion of the annual leave and where an employee requests that his third week of leave be replaced by such indemnity.
