During the paid leave period, the employer must pay the employee a leave indemnity.
This indemnity can be calculated according to two different methods:

  1. ”Maintenance” method – the salary maintenance method: the indemnity is equal to the amount of remuneration that would have been received during the period of leave if the employee had continued to work;
  2. The “1/10 method”: the indemnity is equal to one tenth of the total gross remuneration received by the employee during the reference period.

The employer must compare these two methods of calculation and choose the most advantageous amount for the employee.
