Eligibility for Parental leave

Eligibility for parental leave depends on 3 factors.  These are:

  1. The Employee’s status as a parent,
  2. The age of the relevant child in respect of whom leave is being taken, and,
  3. The Employee meeting minimum service requirements.

Parental status

The Employee must be a natural or adoptive parent, or a person acting in loco parentis to the relevant child.  Both parents have a separate entitlement to leave.
