8.04. The employee who, at the end of a qualifying period, has 10 years of uninterrupted service shall be entitled to a vacation leave of 4 weeks. The vacation pay shall be equal to 8% of the employee’s total wages earned during the qualifying period.
If an employee is absent owing to sickness or an accident or if the employee is the victim of a criminal act or is on maternity or paternity leave during the reference year, and should that absence result in the reduction of that employee’s annual leave indemnity, the employee is then entitled to an indemnity equal, as the case may be, to 3 or 4 times the weekly average of the wages earned during the period worked, according to the number of weeks to which the employee is entitled. An employee referred to in section 8.02 is entitled to that amount in proportion to the days of leave credited to the employee’s account.
