Judgment No. 1981
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The complainant was placed on leave without pay. Although she was included in a reduction-in-force exercise, she was not successful and she was paid damages in lieu of reinstatement. She argues that her termination indemnity should be recalculated to take into account the period of leave. "The issue is therefore whether service time continued to accrue. the answer is that it did not accrue, since the organization opted to pay damages in lieu of reinstatement. As there was no reinstatement, service time did not occur."
