Parental Leave

Parental Leave is a statutory right available to employees with dependent children enabling them to take unpaid time off, in addition to paid leave, to look after a child or make arrangements for their welfare.

The Parental Leave Policy talks through when this can be applied, when and how you can make the request for this type of leave.

To make an application for Parental Leave, the Parental Leave Notification Form is provided for this purpose.
