7.03. An employee who, at the end of a reference year, is credited with 1 year of uninterrupted service with the same employer during that period, is entitled to an annual leave of a minimum duration of 2 consecutive weeks.
The indemnity for that leave is 4% of the gross wages of the employee during the reference year.
An employee is also entitled, if he applies therefore, to an additional annual leave without pay equal to the number of days required to increase his annual leave to 3 weeks.
Such additional leave need not follow immediately a leave provided for in the first paragraph and, notwithstanding sections 7.07 and 7.10, it may not be divided, or be replaced by a compensatory indemnity.
