7.09. The annual vacation is exigible in the 12 months following the qualifying year.
Notwithstanding the first paragraph, the employer may, at the request of the employee, allow the annual leave to be taken, in whole or in part, during the reference year.
In addition, if at the end of the 12 months following the end of a reference year, the employee is absent owing to sickness or accident or is absent or on leave for family or parental matters, the employer may, at the request of the employee, defer the annual leave to the following year. If the annual leave is not so deferred, the employer must pay the indemnity for the annual leave to which the employee is entitled.
Notwithstanding any contrary clause of a collective agreement or a contract, any period of salary insurance, sickness insurance or disability insurance interrupted by a leave taken in accordance with the first paragraph is continued, where applicable, after the leave, as if it had never been interrupted.
