Parental leave

The statutory right to parental leave is available to employees only and on the basis they have been employed for at least 1 year and have (or expect to have) responsibility for a child.  Currently each parent is entitled to take 13 weeks’ leave for each child (to be taken before the child’s 5th birthday) or 18 weeks’ leave if the child has a disability (to be taken before the child’s 18th birthday).

From 8 March 2013, the maximum parental leave entitlement will increase from 13 weeks to 18 weeks per child.
