81.15. At the end of a parental leave not exceeding 12 weeks or a maternity leave, the employer shall reinstate the employee in his former position with the same benefits, including the wage to which he would have been entitled had he remained at work.
At the end of a parental leave exceeding 12 weeks, the employer may, instead of reinstating the employee in his former position, assign him to comparable employment in the same establishment with a wage equal to or higher than that to which he would have been entitled had he remained at work, and with an equivalent pension and insurance plan, where applicable.
If the position held by the employee no longer exists when he returns to work, the employer shall recognize all the rights and privileges to which the employee would have been entitled if he had been at work at the time his position ceased to exist.
1990, c. 73, s. 34.
