76.3. Compensation for maternity leave, paternity leave or adoption leave shall be paid only as a supplement to parental insurance benefits or employment insurance benefits, as the case may be, or in the cases mentioned below, as payments during a period of absence for which the Québec Parental Insurance Plan and the Employment Insurance Plan provide no benefit.
Subject to paragraph 1 of section 76.16 and section 76.17, compensation for maternity leave, paternity leave and adoption leave, however, is paid only during the weeks the officer receives or would receive, after submitting an application for benefits, benefits under the Québec Parental Insurance Plan or the Employment Insurance Plan.
If an officer shares adoption or parental benefits under the Québec Parental Insurance Plan or the Employment Insurance Plan with his or her spouse, compensation shall be paid only if the officer actually receives a benefit under one of these plans during the maternity leave provided for in section 76.7, the paternity leave provided for in section 76.30 or the adoption leave provided for in section 76.41.
