76.43. At the officer’s request, the adoption leave provided for in section 76.41 may be divided into weeks if the child is hospitalized or if a situation described in sections 79.1 and 79.8 to 79.12 of the Act respecting labour standards (chapter N-1.1) occurs.
The maximum number of weeks during which adoption leave may be suspended is equal to the number of weeks during which the child is hospitalized. For other adoption leave division options, the maximum number of weeks of suspension is prescribed in the Act respecting labour standards for the applicable situation.
During such suspension, an officer is considered to be on leave without pay and shall not receive any allowance or benefit from the employer; however, the officer receives the benefits prescribed in section 76.56.
