9. Unless otherwise stated in the collective agreement, the employer has the right to request additional information to determine the right to sick leave with remuneration. This is particularly the case in the case of a “… to meet this condition in a manner and on a date set by the employer. However, these requests for additional information must be timely, practical and proportionate. The employer must apply at a time that allows a physician to certify a worker`s condition during the period during which the leave is required or to give a worker sufficient time to comply with the specific request. The employer must indicate the type of evidence it requires. The employer must set appropriate limits on the nature of the information necessary so as not to unduly violate a worker`s privacy. The employer must take due account of the information it receives or otherwise disposes of in determining whether or not there is a right to compensation. 21. Leave for medical and dental appointments of Treasury Board staff is part of the employer`s leave policy. As such, it is not part of the collective agreement and is not subject to appeal in the event of arbitration or decision. It should be noted that prior to 1971, the collective agreement provided that workers would receive a bank of special leave credits up to 25 days for marriage leave, funeral leave, leave for the birth of a child and leave “for other reasons” (including illness in immediate family and medical and dental appointments).
When this provision was removed from the collective agreement, the employer stated that it would continue to provide workers with appointment leave, which is reflected in the employer`s leave policy. Members of the Education and Library Science (EB), Operations Services (SV) and PSAC-UTE (Canada Revenue Agency) groups have also recently ratified their interim agreements. PSAC is working with the Treasury Board to finalize the text and schedules of the new agreements and expects the new contracts to be signed in the coming weeks. 18.03 The deadlines set out in this article may be extended by mutual agreement between the employer and the worker and, if necessary, the representative of the Alliance. This appendix to the collective agreement applies to all members represented by the Public Utilities Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and for whom the rating agency is the employer. Unless specifically stated, the provisions of Parties I to VI do not apply to other delivery initiatives. Separately, the parties signed the agreement on the protocol on the negotiation of the working conditions of civilian members of the RCPV, who would be considered psac bargaining units. 8.01 The rating agency will continue to provide coverage to Dental Plan employees, as included in the agreement between the Treasury Board and the Public Service Alliance of Canada, amended from time to time by the terms of the long-term care agreement between the Public Service Alliance of Canada and the Treasury Board.
