6.8. From 1 January 2000, compensatory paid leave shall be introduced for certain officers. The leave shall correspond to 0.83% of the number of hours paid for work as an officer during the period from 1 January to December 31 in a given year. The leave may not exceed 2 days each year.
The leave shall be used with the agreement of the employer or shall be replaced, in whole or in part, by a lump sum where it has not been used in the 12 months following the year in which it was earned. In the latter case, for each day of unused leave, the lump sum shall correspond to 0.415% of the salary or benefits received for work as an officer during the year in which the leave was earned or of the salary that the officer would have received had he not been participating in the deferred salary leave plan.
If the employee dies, the employer shall pay an amount equivalent to the days of leave earned but not used, without exceeding 4 days.
