34.2. An officer who files a complaint for his dismissal, non-renewal of his appointment or termination of his employment shall maintain his participation in the uniform life insurance plan but may not benefit from the short-term salary insurance plan prescribed in Division 5 of Chapter 4. Also, he shall maintain his participation in the mandatory basic health-accident insurance plan by paying his premiums as well as the employer’s contribution in the plan. He may maintain his participation in the other insurance plans prescribed in subparagraphs 1 and 2 of section 51, except however for the long-term salary insurance plans, until the date on which the arbitrator’s decision is delivered or the date of the agreement between himself and his employer and provided that he so applies to the concerned insurance company in accordance with the provisions of the master policy. The officer who maintains his participation in these insurance plans shall also maintain his participation in the survivor’s pension plan in accordance with the provisions prescribed for this plan.
An officer who is suspended without pay shall maintain his participation in the group insurance plans in accordance with the conditions for maintenance stipulated in the second, fourth and fifth paragraphs of section 33.
Following an arbitrator’s decision in his favour, the officer is entitled to be reimbursed for the contribution normally paid by the officer for the plans in which he maintained his participation and, where applicable, to be reimbursed for the premium he paid to maintain his participation in the survivor’s pension plan, retroactively to the date of his dismissal, non-renewal of engagement or termination of engagement.
If, pursuant to sections 130.12 and 130.14, the decision orders the reintegration of the officer in his position, and if a disability has begun since the date of the date of the dismissal, non-renewal of engagement or termination of engagement, the disability shall then be recognized and the officer shall pay his premiums for the long-term salary insurance plans retroactively to that same date.
