Sept 2020 - For the attention of staff members with children under the age of 13

There has been a recent amendment to the Parental Leave Act. Here are the main points: 

·        An extension of the period of unpaid parental leave from the current entitlement of 22 weeks to 26 weeks comes into effect from the 1st September 2020  

·        The age of the child in relation to whom parental leave is available is up until the day the child turns 13. 

·        This new entitlement allows for staff who have previously used their full entitlement of parental leave to claim any unused leave as long as their child is under the qualifying age (up to the day they turn 13). 

·        A minimum of 6 weeks advance notice is required from the staff member to apply for this additional leave

·        In the case of a child with a disability and/or long-term illness, a staff member is entitled to 26 weeks unpaid parental leave in respect of each child up to the age of 16

·        In the case of an adopted child aged between 11 and 13 years, entitlement to parental leave shall end not later than two years from the date of the adoption order

·        Once arrangements are agreed between the staff and their manager/Head of Department, the staff member must complete the application form which can be found here: Parental Leave Application Form
