Section 80.2


In the circumstances referred to in section 80 or 80.1, the employee must advise his employer of his absence as soon as possible.

1990, c. 73, s. 32.


An employee who wishes to avail himself of this right must notify his employer as soon as possible. When speaking of "as soon as possible", it is important to take into account the employee’s situation and the specific circumstances of each case.

The employee’s right to be absent may be exercised at the time of the death or the funeral, but without exceeding the period between the death and the funeral.
