Parental Leave/Force Majeure Leave
Parental leave is a period of unpaid leave available to teachers for the purpose of the care of children.
Workers are entitled to 18 weeks parental leave in respect of each child up to the age of 13 years or the age of 16 years in the case of a child with a disability and/or long-term illness. This is an increase from 14 weeks which was previously applicable.
