Retirement plan indemnity

A worker who suffers from a severe and long-term physical or mental disability as a result of an employment injury is entitled to continue to participate in the retirement plan offered in the establishment where they were working at the time of the injury, even after the period provided for the worker to exercise their right to return to work has expired. When this period has expired, the CNESST assumes the employer's share of the contributions to the extent that the worker pays the share of the contributions required of them.

Note

Until the expiry of the period provided for the worker to exercise their right to return to work, the worker continues to accumulate seniority in accordance with the collective agreement of the establishment where they were working before the injury and in accordance with uninterrupted service within the meaning of this agreement and the Loi sur les normes du travail.

They may also continue to participate in the retirement and insurance plans offered in the establishment provided they pay their share of the contributions due, if any, in which case their employer assumes their share.

A construction worker who suffers from a severe and long-term physical or mental disability as a result of an employment injury is entitled to continue to participate in the retirement plan offered in the construction company where they were working at the time of the injury. The worker's entitlement begins at the time of the event and the CNESST then assumes the employer's share of the contributions to the extent that the worker pays their share of the contributions due.
