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.
Where the employee so requests, he is also entitled to an additional annual leave without pay for a period equal to the number of days needed to bring his annual leave to 3 weeks.
This annual leave without pay need not follow that provided in the first paragraph and may not be divided or replaced by a compensating indemnity.
