This is a civic obligation that also applies to the employer. The employer's agreement is therefore not necessary.
The employee must notify his employer by giving him a copy of his summons as soon as he has received it.
During the employee's absence, his employment contract shall be suspended.
He receives no remuneration from the employer.
However, the employee shall be entitled to a compensation for loss of professional income (on application and on justification to the Assize Court).
