7. Any employment referred to in Schedule I must, in order to be pensionable employment under this plan, correspond to at least 40 % of the regular time of a full-time employee holding pensionable employment. In addition, employment is, in respect of an employee, pensionable employment under this plan only to the extent that the employee has the classification attached to the employment.
Pensionable employment under the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan (chapter R-10) becomes, in respect of an employee who qualifies for membership in this plan pursuant to Division III of this chapter, pensionable employment under this plan from the day after the day on which the employee becomes so qualified. However, if such an employee ceases to be a member of this plan, unionizable employment within the meaning of the Act respecting the Government and Public Employees Retirement Plan becomes, in respect of the employee, pensionable employment under this plan if the employee holds such unionizable employment within 180 days from the date on which the employee ceased to be a member of this plan.
An employee to whom this plan applies is deemed to hold pensionable employment at any time when the employee holds full-time or part-time employment, which includes, among other periods, any period during which the employee is on leave without pay, is receiving salary insurance benefits and, in the case of a female employee, is on maternity leave.
For the purposes of this plan, salary insurance means the salary insurance that is mandatory for the employee but does not include the salary insurance referred to in section 43.
