    1. the period of vacation leave requested is less than a week
      and
    2. the employee gives the Employer at least two (2) days’ advance notice for each day of vacation leave requested.
  3. The Employer may for good and sufficient reason grant vacation leave on shorter notice than that provided for in (b).

**

  1. The Employer shall respond to vacation leave requests provided under 20.05 a) by April 20 (for the period between May 1 and October 31) and by October 20 (for the period between November 1 and April 30).

Clause LS/EU-20.05 applies to the LS Group and EU Group only:

LS/EU 20.05

  1. Employees are expected to take all of their vacation leave during the vacation year in which it is earned.
  2. In order to maintain operational requirements, the Employer reserves the right to schedule employee’s vacation leave but shall make every reasonable effort to provide an employee’s vacation in an amount and at such time as the employee may request.

20.06 The Employer shall give an employee as much notice as is practicable and reasonable of approval, rejection or cancellation of a request for vacation leave with pay. In the case of rejection or cancellation of such leave, the Employer shall give the reason in writing, upon written request from the employee.

20.07 Where, in respect of any period of vacation leave with pay, an employee is granted:

  1. bereavement leave with pay,
    or
  2. leave with pay because of illness in the immediate family,
    or
  3. sick leave on production of a medical certificate,

the period of vacation leave with pay so displaced shall either be added to the vacation period, if requested by the employee and approved by the Employer, or reinstated for use at a later date.

20.08

  1. The leave entitlement for the current vacation year shall be used first.
  2. Where in any vacation year an employee has not been granted all of the annual leave credited to him or her, the unused portion of annual leave shall be carried over into the following year, except that the unused portion of annual leave in excess of two hundred and sixty-two decimal five (262.5) hours shall be automatically converted into a payment, by multiplying the number of days to which the excess leave credits correspond by the daily rate of pay applicable to the classification prescribed in the employee’s certificate of employment of his or her substantive position in effect on the last day of the preceding fiscal year.
  3. Notwithstanding paragraph (b), during any vacation year, upon application by the employee and at the discretion of the Employer, earned but unused vacation leave credits in excess of one hundred and twelve decimal five (112.5) hours may be paid at the employee’s daily rate of pay as calculated from the classification prescribed in the certificate of appointment of the employee’s substantive position on March 31 of the previous vacation year.
  4. When in a vacation year an employee has applied for vacation leave with pay, in accordance with clause ED 20.05 or LS/EU 20.05, and has not been granted all the leave requested, the portion of the yearly entitlement of leave that was not granted should be rescheduled by mutual agreement into the next vacation year. Such mutual agreement shall not be unreasonably withheld.
  5. While vacation leave credits shall normally not exceed two hundred and sixty-two decimal five (262.5) hours in excess of the current year entitlement, an employee may request, in exceptional circumstances, to carry over additional vacation leave credits for specific purposes. Such request shall include the duration and purpose of the carry-over.

Recall from vacation leave with pay

20.09

  1. The Employer will make every reasonable effort not to recall an employee to duty after the employee has proceeded on vacation leave with pay.
  2. When during any period of vacation leave with pay, an employee is recalled to duty, the employee shall be reimbursed for reasonable expenses, as normally defined by the Employer, that the employee incurs:
    1. in proceeding to employee’s place of duty,
      and
    2. in returning to the place from which the employee was recalled if the employee immediately resumes vacation upon completing the assignment for which the employee was recalled,

    after submitting such accounts as are normally required by the Employer.

  3. The employee shall not be considered as being on vacation leave during any period in respect of which the employee is entitled under paragraph 20.09(b) to be reimbursed for reasonable expenses incurred by the employee.

Leave when employment terminates

20.10 When an employee dies or otherwise ceases to be employed, the employee or the employee’s estate shall be paid an amount equal to the product obtained by multiplying the number of days of earned but unused vacation leave with pay to the employee’s credit by the daily rate of pay applicable immediately prior to the termination of the employee’s employment. However, where the employee requests, the Employer shall grant the employee any vacation leave earned but not used by the employee before the employment is terminated by lay-off because of a requirement to meet minimum continuous employment requirements for severance pay.

20.11 Notwithstanding clause 20.10, an employee whose employment is terminated by reason of a declaration of abandonment of position is entitled to receive the payment referred to in clause 20.10, if the employee requests it within six (6) months following the date of termination of employment.

Advance payments

20.12

  1. The Employer agrees to issue advance payments of estimated net salary for vacation periods of two (2) or more complete weeks, provided a written request for such advance payment is received from the employee at least six (6) weeks prior to the last payday before the employee’s vacation period commences.
  2. Providing the employee has been authorized to proceed on vacation leave for the period concerned, pay in advance of going on vacation shall be made prior to departure. Any overpayment in respect of such pay advances shall be an immediate first charge against any subsequent pay entitlements and shall be recovered in full prior to any further payment of salary.

Cancellation or alteration of vacation leave

20.13 When the Employer cancels or alters a period of vacation leave which it had previously approved in writing, the Employer shall reimburse the employee for the non-returnable portion of vacation contracts and reservations made by the employee in respect of that period, subject to the presentation of such documentation as the Employer may require. The employee must make every reasonable attempt to mitigate any losses incurred and will provide proof of such action to the Employer.

Appointment to a separate employer

20.14 Notwithstanding clause 20.10, an employee who resigns to accept an appointment with an organization listed in Schedule V of the Financial Administration Act may choose not to be paid for unused vacation leave credits, provided that the appointing organization will accept such credits.

Appointment from a separate employer

20.15 The Employer agrees to accept the unused vacation leave credits up to a maximum of two hundred and sixty-two decimal five (262.5) hours of an employee who resigns from an organization listed in Schedule V of the Financial Administration Act in order to take a position with the Employer if the transferring employee is eligible and has chosen to have these credits transferred.

Summer leave for the ED-LAT Sub-Group of ED (twelve (12) month work year)

20.16 Employees shall be granted leave without pay during the months of May, June, July, August and September provided a request for such leave is received in writing by the Employer on or before March 15 in each year and provided that leave without pay immediately follows the annual leave. At the departmental level, the total number of requests for leave without pay, spread over the aforementioned five (5) months shall not exceed four per cent (4%) of the employees subject to this clause. The total number of weeks of annual leave with pay earned by the employee together with the total number of weeks of leave without pay granted to the employee shall not exceed ten (10) weeks.

  2. The vacation leave credits provided in clause 20.17(a) above shall be excluded from the application of paragraph 20.08 dealing with the carry-over and/or liquidation of vacation leave.

  7. It is recognized by the parties that the circumstances which call for leave in respect of bereavement are based on individual circumstances. On request, the deputy head of a department may, after considering the particular circumstances involved, grant leave with pay for a period greater than and/or in a different manner than that provided for in paragraphs (b) and (e).

22.03 Maternity leave without pay

    the period of maternity leave without pay defined in paragraph (a) may be extended beyond the date falling eighteen (18) weeks after the date of termination of pregnancy by a period equal to that portion of the period of the child’s hospitalization while the employee was not on maternity leave, to a maximum of eighteen (18) weeks.

  3. The extension described in paragraph (b) shall end not later than fifty-two (52) weeks after the termination date of pregnancy.

An employee shall inform the Employer in writing of her plans for taking leave with and without pay to cover her absence from work due to the pregnancy at least four (4) weeks before the initial date of continuous leave of absence during which termination of pregnancy is expected to occur unless there is a valid reason why the notice cannot be given.
  7. Leave granted under this clause shall be counted for the calculation of “continuous employment” for the purpose of calculating severance pay and “service” for the purpose of calculating vacation leave. Time spent on such leave shall be counted for pay increment purposes.

      and
    3. has signed an agreement with the Employer stating that:

      **

      1. she will return to work within the federal public administration, as specified in Schedule I, Schedule IV or Schedule V of the Financial Administration Act on the expiry date of her maternity leave without pay unless the return-to-work date is modified by the approval of another form of leave;
      2. following her return to work, as described in section (A), she will work for a period equal to the period she was in receipt of the maternity allowance;

      **

      1. should she fail to return to work as described in section (A), or should she return to work but fail to work for the total period specified in section (B), for reasons other than death, lay-off, early termination due to lack of work or discontinuance of a function of a specified period of employment that would have been sufficient to meet the obligations specified in section (B), or having become disabled as defined in the Public Service Superannuation Act, she will be indebted to the Employer for an amount determined as follows:

        Allowance received multiplied by the remaining period to be worked following her return to work and divided by the total period to be worked as specified in (B).

        However, an employee whose specified period of employment expired and who is rehired within the federal public administration as described in section (A) within a period of ninety (90) days or less is not indebted for the amount if her new period of employment is sufficient to meet the obligations specified in section (B).

  2. For the purpose of sections (a)(iii)(B) and (C), periods of leave with pay shall count as time worked. Periods of leave without pay during the employee’s return to work will not be counted as time worked but shall interrupt the period referred to in section (a)(iii)(B), without activating the recovery provisions described in section (a)(iii)(C).
  3. Maternity allowance payments made in accordance with the Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Plan will consist of the following:
    1. where an employee is subject to a waiting period before receiving Employment Insurance maternity benefits, ninety-three per cent (93%) of her weekly rate of pay for each week of the waiting period, less any other monies earned during this period,
    2. for each week that the employee receives a maternity benefit under the Employment Insurance or Québec Parental Insurance Plan, she is eligible to receive the difference between ninety-three per cent (93%) of her weekly rate and the maternity benefit, less any other monies earned during this period which may result in a decrease in her maternity benefit to which she would have been eligible if no extra monies had been earned during this period,
      and
    3. where an employee has received the full fifteen (15) weeks of maternity benefit under Employment Insurance and thereafter remains on maternity leave without pay, she is eligible to receive a further maternity allowance for a period of one (1) week at ninety-three per cent (93%) of her weekly rate of pay, less any other monies earned during this period.
  4. At the employee’s request, the payment referred to in subparagraph 22.04(c)(i) will be estimated and advanced to the employee. Adjustments will be made once the employee provides proof of receipt of Employment Insurance maternity or Québec Parental Insurance Plan benefits.
  5. The maternity allowance to which an employee is entitled is limited to that provided in paragraph (c) and an employee will not be reimbursed for any amount that she may be required to repay pursuant to the Employment Insurance Act or the Parental Insurance Act in Quebec.
  6. The weekly rate of pay referred to in paragraph (c) shall be:
    1. for a full-time employee, the employee’s weekly rate of pay on the day immediately preceding the commencement of maternity leave without pay;
    2. for an employee who has been employed on a part-time or on a combined full-time and part-time basis during the six (6) month period preceding the commencement of maternity leave, the rate obtained by multiplying the weekly rate of pay in subparagraph (i) by the fraction obtained by dividing the employee’s straight-time earnings by the straight-time earnings the employee would have earned working full-time during such period.
  7. The weekly rate of pay referred to in paragraph (f) shall be the rate to which the employee is entitled for her substantive level to which she is appointed.
  8. Notwithstanding paragraph (g), and subject to subparagraph (f)(ii), if on the day immediately preceding the commencement of maternity leave without pay an employee has been on an acting assignment for at least four (4) months, the weekly rate shall be the rate she was being paid on that day.
  9. Where an employee becomes eligible for a pay increment or pay revision that would increase the maternity allowance while in receipt of the maternity allowance, the allowance shall be adjusted accordingly.
  10. Maternity allowance payments made under the Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Plan will neither reduce nor increase an employee’s deferred remuneration or severance pay.

22.05 Special maternity allowance for totally disabled employees

  1. An employee who:
    1. fails to satisfy the eligibility requirement specified in subparagraph 22.04(a)(ii) solely because a concurrent entitlement to benefits under the Disability Insurance (DI) Plan, the Long-Term Disability (LTD) Insurance portion of the Public Service Management Insurance Plan (PSMIP) or the Government Employees Compensation Act prevents her from receiving Employment Insurance or Québec Parental Insurance Plan maternity benefits,
      and
    2. has satisfied all of the other eligibility criteria specified in paragraph 22.04(a), other than those specified in sections (A) and (B) of subparagraph 22.04(a)(iii),

    shall be paid, in respect of each week of maternity allowance not received for the reason described in subparagraph (i), the difference between ninety-three per cent (93%) of her weekly rate of pay and the gross amount of her weekly disability benefit under the DI Plan, the LTD Plan or the Government Employees Compensation Act.

  2. An employee shall be paid an allowance under this clause and under clause 22.04 for a combined period of no more than the number of weeks while she would have been eligible for maternity benefits under the Employment Insurance or Québec Parental Insurance Plan had she not been disqualified from Employment Insurance or Québec Parental Insurance Plan maternity benefits for the reasons described in subparagraph (a)(i).

22.07 Parental allowance

Under the Employment Insurance (EI) benefits plan, parental allowance is payable under two (2) options, either:

  • Option 1: standard parental benefits, paragraphs 22.07(c) to (k),
    or
  • Option 2: extended parental benefits, paragraphs 22.07(l) to (t).

Once an employee elects the standard or extended parental benefits and the weekly benefit top up allowance is set, the decision is irrevocable and shall not be changed should the employee return to work at an earlier date than that originally scheduled.

Parental allowance administration

  1. An employee who has been granted parental leave without pay shall be paid a parental allowance in accordance with the terms of the Supplemental Unemployment Benefit (SUB) Plan described in paragraphs (c) to (i) or (l) to (r), providing he or she:
    1. has completed six (6) months of continuous employment before the commencement of parental leave without pay;
    2. provides the Employer with proof that he or she has applied for and is in receipt of parental, paternity or adoption benefits under the Employment Insurance Plan or the Québec Parental Insurance Plan in respect of insurable employment with the Employer;

      1. the employee will return to work within the federal public administration, as specified in Schedule I, Schedule IV or Schedule V of the Financial Administration Act on the expiry date of his or her parental leave without pay, unless the return-to-work date is modified by the approval of another form of leave;
      2. following his or her return to work, as described in section (A), the employee will work for a period equal to the period the employee was in receipt of the standard parental allowance, in addition to the period of time referred to in section 22.04(a)(iii)(B), if applicable. Where the employee has elected the extended parental allowance, following his or her return to work, as described in section (A), the employee will work for a period equal to sixty per cent (60%) of the period the employee was in receipt of the extended parental allowance in addition to the period of time referred to in section 22.04(a)(iii)(B), if applicable;
      3. should he or she fail to return to work as described in section (A) or should he or she return to work but fail to work the total period specified in section (B), for reasons other than death, lay-off, early termination due to lack of work or discontinuance of a function of a specified period of employment that would have been sufficient to meet the obligations specified in section (B), or having become disabled as defined in the Public Service Superannuation Act, he or she will be indebted to the Employer for an amount determined as follows:

37.04 Subject to and as provided in section 220 of the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations Act, the Alliance or the Employer may present a policy grievance in respect of the interpretation or application of the collective agreement or of an arbitral award.

  1. A policy grievance may be presented by the Alliance only at the final level of the grievance procedure, to an authorized representative of the Employer. The Employer shall inform the Alliance of the name, title and address of this representative.
  2. The grievance procedure for a policy grievance by the Employer shall also be composed of a single level, with the grievance presented to an authorized representative of the Alliance. The Alliance shall inform the Employer of the name, title and address of this representative.

Grievance procedure

37.05 For the purposes of this article, a grievor is an employee or, in the case of a group or policy grievance, the Alliance.

37.06 No person shall seek by intimidation, by threat of dismissal or by any other kind of threat to cause a grievor to abandon a grievance or refrain from exercising the right to present a grievance, as provided in this collective agreement.

37.07 The parties recognize the value of informal discussion between employees and their supervisors and between the Alliance and the Employer to the end that problems might be resolved without recourse to a formal grievance. When notice is given that an employee or the Alliance, within the time limits prescribed in clause 37.15, wishes to take advantage of this clause, it is agreed that the period between the initial discussion and the final response shall not count as elapsed time for the purpose of grievance time limits.

37.08 A grievor wishing to present a grievance at any prescribed level in the grievance procedure, shall transmit this grievance to the employee’s immediate supervisor or local officer-in-charge who shall forthwith:

  1. forward the grievance to the representative of the Employer authorized to deal with grievances at the appropriate level,
    and
  2. provide the grievor with a receipt stating the date on which the grievance was received.

37.09 A grievance shall not be deemed to be invalid by reason only of the fact that it is not in accordance with the form supplied by the Employer.

37.10 Subject to and as provided for in the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations Act, a grievor who feels treated unjustly or aggrieved by an action or lack of action by the Employer in matters other than those arising from the classification process is entitled to present a grievance in the manner prescribed in clause 37.08, except that:

  1. where there is another administrative procedure provided by or under any Act of Parliament to deal with the grievor’s specific complaint such procedure must be followed,
    and
  2. where the grievance relates to the interpretation or application of this collective agreement or an arbitral award, an employee is not entitled to present the grievance unless he has the approval of and is represented by the Alliance.

37.11 There shall be no more than a maximum of four (4) levels in the grievance procedure. These levels shall be as follows:

  1. Level 1: first level of management;
  2. Levels 2 and 3 in departments or agencies where such levels are established: intermediate level(s);
  3. final level: chief executive or deputy head or an authorized representative.

Whenever there are four (4) levels in the grievance procedure, the grievor may elect to waive either Level 2 or 3.

No Employer representative may hear the same grievance at more than one level in the grievance procedure.

37.12 The Employer shall designate a representative at each level in the grievance procedure and shall inform each employee to whom the procedure applies of the name or title of the person so designated together with the name or title and address of the immediate supervisor or local officer-in-charge to whom a grievance is to be presented.

37.13 This information shall be communicated to employees by means of notices posted by the Employer in places where such notices are most likely to come to the attention of the employees to whom the grievance procedure applies, or otherwise as determined by agreement between the Employer and the Alliance.

37.14 An employee may be assisted and/or represented by the Alliance when presenting a grievance at any level. The Alliance shall have the right to consult with the Employer with respect to a grievance at each or any level of the grievance procedure.

37.15 A grievor may present a grievance to the first level of the procedure in the manner prescribed in clause 37.08, not later than the twenty-fifth (25th) day after the date on which the grievor is notified or on which the grievor first becomes aware of the action or circumstances giving rise to the grievance. The Employer may present a policy grievance in the manner prescribed in clause 37.04 not later than the twenty-fifth (25th) day after the date on which the Employer is notified orally or in writing or on which the Employer first becomes aware of the action or circumstances giving rise to the policy grievance.

37.16 A grievor may present a grievance at each succeeding level in the grievance procedure beyond the first level either:

  1. where the decision or settlement is not satisfactory to the grievor, within ten (10) days after that decision or settlement has been conveyed in writing to the grievor by the Employer,
    or
  2. where the Employer has not conveyed a decision to the grievor within the time prescribed in clause 37.17, within fifteen (15) days after presentation by the grievor of the grievance at the previous level.

37.17 The Employer shall normally reply to a grievance at any level of the grievance procedure, except the final level, within ten (10) days after the grievance is presented, and within twenty (20) days where the grievance is presented at the final level except in the case of a policy grievance, to which the Employer shall normally respond within thirty (30) days. The Alliance shall normally reply to a policy grievance presented by the Employer within thirty (30) days.

37.18 Where an employee has been represented by the Alliance in the presentation of the employee’s grievance, the Employer will provide the appropriate representative of the Alliance with a copy of the Employer’s decision at each level of the grievance procedure at the same time that the Employer’s decision is conveyed to the employee.

37.19 The decision given by the Employer at the final level in the grievance procedure shall be final and binding upon the employee unless the grievance is a class of grievance that may be referred to adjudication.

37.20 In determining the time within which any action is to be taken as prescribed in this procedure, Saturdays, Sundays and designated paid holidays shall be excluded.

37.21 Where the provisions of clause 37.08 cannot be complied with and it is necessary to present a grievance by mail, the grievance shall be deemed to have been presented on the day on which it is postmarked and it shall be deemed to have been received by the Employer on the day it is delivered to the appropriate office of the department or agency concerned. Similarly, the Employer shall be deemed to have delivered a reply at any level on the date on which the letter containing the reply is postmarked, but the time limit within which the grievor may present the grievance at the next higher level shall be calculated from the date on which the Employer’s reply was delivered to the address shown on the grievance form.

37.22 The time limits stipulated in this procedure may be extended by mutual agreement between the Employer and the grievor and, where appropriate the Alliance representative.

37.23 Where it appears that the nature of the grievance is such that a decision cannot be given below a particular level of authority, any or all the levels except the final level may be eliminated by agreement of the Employer and the grievor, and, where applicable, the Alliance.

37.24 Where the Employer demotes or terminates an employee for cause pursuant to paragraph 12(1)(c), (d) or (e) of the Financial Administration Act, the grievance procedure set forth in this agreement shall apply except that the grievance shall be presented at the final level only.

37.25 A grievor may by written notice to the immediate supervisor or officer-in-charge abandon a grievance.

37.26 Any grievor who fails to present a grievance to the next higher level within the prescribed time limits shall be deemed to have abandoned the grievance unless, due to circumstances beyond the grievor’s control, the grievor was unable to comply with the prescribed time limits.

37.27 Where a grievance has been presented up to and including the final level in the grievance procedure with respect to:

  1. the interpretation or application of a provision of this collective agreement or related arbitral award,
    or
  2. termination of employment or demotion pursuant to paragraph 12(1)(c), (d) or (e) of the Financial Administration Act,
    or
  3. disciplinary action resulting in suspension or financial penalty,

and the grievance has not been dealt with to the grievor’s satisfaction, it may be referred to adjudication in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations Act and Regulations.

37.28 Where a grievance that may be presented by an employee to adjudication is a grievance relating to the interpretation or application in respect of the employee of a provision of this agreement or an arbitral award, the employee is not entitled to refer the grievance to adjudication unless the Alliance signifies:

  1. its approval of the reference of the grievance to adjudication,
    and
  2. its willingness to represent the employee in the adjudication proceedings.

Expedited adjudication

37.29 The parties agree that any adjudicable grievance may be referred to the following expedited adjudication process:

  1. At the request of either party, a grievance that has been referred to adjudication may be dealt with through Expedited Adjudication with the consent of both parties.
  2. When the parties agree that a particular grievance will proceed through Expedited Adjudication, the Alliance will submit to the PSLREB the consent form signed by the grievor or the bargaining agent.
  3. The parties may proceed with or without an Agreed Statement of Facts. When the parties arrive at an Agreed Statement of Facts it will be submitted to the PSLREB or to the Adjudicator at the hearing.
  4. No witnesses will testify.
  5. The Adjudicator will be appointed by the PSLREB from among its members who have had at least three (3) years’ experience as a member of the Board.
  6. Each Expedited Adjudication session will take place in Ottawa, unless the parties and the PSLREB agree otherwise. The cases will be scheduled jointly by the parties and the PSLREB, and will appear on the PSLREB schedule.
  7. The Adjudicator will make an oral determination at the hearing, which will be recorded and initialled by the representatives of the parties. This will be confirmed in a written determination to be issued by the Adjudicator within five (5) days of the hearing. The parties may, at the request of the Adjudicator, vary the above conditions in a particular case.
  8. The Adjudicator’s determination will be final and binding on all the parties, but will not constitute a precedent. The parties agree not to refer the determination to the Federal Court.

    or
  2. informs her in writing that it is not reasonably practicable to modify her job functions or reassign her.

However, such leave shall end no later than seventy-eight (78) weeks after the birth.

57.06 An employee whose job functions have been modified, who has been reassigned or who is on leave of absence shall give at least two (2) weeks’ notice in writing to the Employer of any change in duration of the risk or the inability as indicated in the medical certificate, unless there is a valid reason why that notice cannot be given.
