Section 74.1

Equal indemnity

No employer may reduce the annual leave of an employee referred to in section 41.1, or change the way in which the indemnity pertaining to it is computed, in comparison with what is granted to his other employees performing the same tasks in the same establishment, solely because of the employee’s employment status, and in particular because the employee usually works fewer hours each week.

1990, c. 73, s. 26.

Interpretation

No employer may reduce the annual leave of a part-time employee or change the method of calculating the indemnity pertaining to it solely because of the employee’s employment status, and in particular because the employee works fewer hours per week . That employee is entitled to the same leave and the same method of calculating the indemnity as the other employees who perform the same tasks in the same establishment. The same protection is granted the employee with regard to the rate of wage under section 41.1 ALS (on this subject, see the interpretation under this section).
