Maintaining a workplace benefit plan while on leave
During pregnancy, parental, compassionate care, critically ill child, crime related child death or disappearance, reservists', citizenship ceremony and emergency leaves your employer must give you the option to keep up any benefit plan you belong to. This would be at your own expense, unless your employer agrees otherwise. When you return from any of these leaves, your employer must accept you back into the same or a comparable position with no loss of benefits or seniority. There are a few exceptions. Contact Labour Standards for more information.
