Leave of absence from duty

C5.—(1) A member who is on leave of absence from duty in an employment with reduced or no remuneration (otherwise than by reason of illness or injury) shall not make any contribution under regulation C3 in respect of the employment for the period of his absence.

(2) Unless regulation C6 (maternity leave) applies to a member who is so absent, the member shall—

(a)for a period of 30 days beginning on the first day of the leave of absence, or

(b)if the period of absence is shorter, for the period of it,

make contributions of amounts equal to the contributions he would have been required to make under regulation C3 on the remuneration he would have received during that period but for the leave of absence.

(3) If the member gives notice in writing for the purpose to the employing authority not later than 30 days after—

(a)the day on which he returns to duty, or

(b)the day on which he ceases to be employed by that authority,

whichever is the earlier, he shall make such contributions as are mentioned in paragraph (2) for the period of his absence up to a maximum of 36 months, or the period of his absence, if shorter.

(4) Where the leave of absence was given to enable the employee to attend—

(a)for jury service in pursuance of a summons under the Juries (Northern Ireland) Order 1996(1), or

(b)as a juror at an inquest under the Coroners Act (Northern Ireland) 1959(2),

and such attendance continues after the expiration of the period of 30 days mentioned in paragraph (2), the employee shall be deemed to have given such a notice as is mentioned in paragraph (3).

(5) This regulation does not apply where the leave of absence is given to enable the employee to perform relevant service (within the meaning of regulation C8 (absence on reserve forces service)).
