(3)  Payment of vacation pay: vacation pay is paid to the employee in 1 payment before the beginning of the vacation.

An employee whose annual leave is less than two weeks is entitled to that amount in proportion to the days of leave credited to his account.
To detemine the indemnity applicable to that leave, the employer must:

(c)  multiply the amount of the wages earned per week by the number of weeks of paid annual leave to which the employee is entitled;

An annual leave indemnity calculated in accordance with this section must not, however, exceed that to which the employee would have been entitled if he had not been absent.
