Availability is the situation of an employee who temporarily ceases to be active in the public service. It may be granted for various reasons. A staff member on standby shall cease to enjoy his or her remuneration, promotion rights (except in certain cases) and retirement rights, except under certain conditions if he or she is engaged in another activity. The conditions of reintegration vary according to the civil service in which the person is employed.
