I need help with calculating the work experience for Express Entry FSW Program:
I have officially been in job as a Software Tester for 2 years from Aug 2011 to August 2013. Out of this 1 year is maternity leave from August 2012 to Aug 2013, which I understand is not calculated as experience. ( Please Correct me If I am wrong)
Now the time period in question is Aug 2011 to July 2012. Within this time frame, I have worked 11 months (Aug to May, )however 12th month (July) I was on sick leave and I just got the statutory Sick pay(10% of normal salary).
My question is can I apply for Express entry with the 11 months of full time work and full pay and 12th month of sick leave.
FYI I have Worked 37.5 hours/week which makes 1650 hours (11 months * 20 days * 7.5 hours).
Thanks in advance.
