76.18. In the cases provided for by sections 76.14, 76.16 and 76.17:
(1) no compensation may be paid during a vacation period during which an officer receives her salary;
(2) unless the salary is paid on a weekly basis, the allowance shall be paid at 2-week intervals, the first payment being due, in the case of an officer eligible for benefits under the Québec Parental Insurance Plan or the or the Employment Insurance Plan, only 15 days after the employer obtains proof that she is receiving benefits under one of those plans. For the purposes of this paragraph, a statement of benefits, a payment stub or information provided, by means of an official statement, by the Ministry of Employment and Social Solidarity or by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) shall be accepted as proof;
(3) service shall be calculated with all employers of the public and parapublic sectors (public service, education, health and social services), health and social service agencies, all agencies for which, by law, the employees’ employment conditions or standards and scales of remuneration are determined or approved by the government, the Office franco-québécois pour la jeunesse, the Société de gestion du réseau informatique des commissions scolaires (GRICS) or any other agency listed in Schedule C of the Act respecting the process of negotiation of the collective agreements in the public and parapublic sectors (chapter R-8.2).
Moreover, the requirement of 20 weeks of service under sections 76.14, 76.16 and 76.17 is deemed to have been met, if the officer has satisfied this requirement with any employer mentioned in this paragraph;
(4) the weekly salary of a part-time officer is the average weekly salary of the last 20 weeks preceding her maternity leave.
If, during that period, an officer received benefits established at a certain percentage of her regular salary, it shall be understood that, for the purposes of calculating her salary during her maternity leave, the salary referred to is that on the basis of which such benefits are determined.
Moreover, any period during which an officer on a special leave as provided for in section 76.25 did not receive an indemnity from the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST), as well as the weeks during which the officer was on annual leave or was absent without pay in accordance with the Regulation, are excluded for the purpose of calculating the average weekly salary.
If the period of 20 weeks preceding a part-time officer’s maternity leave includes the date on which salaries are adjusted, the calculation of the weekly salary shall be made on the basis of the salary in force on that date. Moreover, if the maternity leave includes the date on which salaries are adjusted, the weekly salary shall change on that date in accordance with the adjustment formula applicable to her salary class.
The provisions of this paragraph constitute one of the express provisions covered by section 76.2.
