44. An employee who is summoned to act as a juror or to appear as a witness before a court in a case where the employee is not one of the parties must inform the employer as soon as the summons is received.
In such circumstances, the employer pays to the employee, for each day of absence, an amount equal to the difference between 1/20 of the wages earned during the 4 weeks of pay preceding the trial, but excluding overtime and the indemnities or allowances that were paid to the employee as a juror or witness.
To benefit from that amount, the employee must apply for the indemnities and allowances to which the employee is entitled under the law and provide proof.
