25. Where the application of the rule prescribed under section 24 no longer allows to maintain a gap of 7% between the salaries of officers at different levels in the same hierarchy line and that the officer at the higher level has reached the maximum for his salary class, the employer shall add an amount to this officer’s salary in order to maintain a gap of 7%. In such a case, the officer’s salary is not deemed to be outside the class.
Where the rule provided for in the first paragraph no longer applies, the officer shall be entitled to the salary rules provided for in the second paragraph of section 20, with the necessary modifications.
