The law and collective agreements sometimes require a minimum length of service in order to benefit from certain rights in the company. For example, some collective agreements require a minimum of 1 year of service to be able to benefit from salary maintenance in the event of maternity leave. Yet, as soon as an employee is confirmed to his or her position on a permanent contract, he or she is a full-fledged member of the company. It seems unfair to deprive an employee, with whom a long-term collaboration is taking root, of rights granted to his or her colleagues. In addition to redressing a form of injustice, changing this would help lay the foundations of a trusting and lasting collaboration.
- Remove any condition of minimum service terms and extend access to parenthood-related measures to all employees confirmed on full-time contracts.
- ... And, doing so regardless of the type of measures concerned (from the Labor Code, your collective agreement, or additional measures implemented by your company).
- Optional: If you wish, you can go even further by extending this measure to all categories of employees, even during the trial period.
