Division V.0.1 - Absences Owing to sickness, an organ or tissue donation, an accident, domestic violence, sexual violence or a criminal offence (Section 79.1 to 79.6)
All of the standards concerning absences owing to sickness, organ or tissue donation for transplant, accident, domestic violence, sexual violence or criminal offence are covered in this section, which explicitly sets out an employee’s right to be absent for these reasons. As long as the employee has three months of uninterrupted service and is absent for at most 26 weeks in 12 months, owing to the recourse set out in paragraph 1 of section 122 of the ALS, an employee who is absent for one of these reasons is protected from dismissal, suspension, transfer, discriminatory measures, reprisals or any type of sanction thus imposed.
