Under the collective agreement, the employer tops up my wages to 93 per cent of my pay for the first two weeks of my maternity, parental, or adoption leave. Will I get this during a strike or lockout?


No. The employer does not have to pay this for any part of the two-week period that falls during a strike or lockout. Please note that Service Canada changed the waiting period to a one-week period as of January 1, 2017.
