We believe that parenting is a joy and a responsibility that should be shared by all parents. Anyone (regardless of gender) welcoming a newborn (biological or adopted) is offered 6 months paid and a further 6 months unpaid leave.
This can be taken anytime from 6 months before the child is born to when the child is 24 months old.
Very sick leave
Time off for serious illness such as dengue etc. does not count as leave.
Bereavement leave of up to 15 days per year may be taken as needed.
Leave of up to 15 days for significant life events (for instance, if you are getting married) may be taken as needed.
Beyond this, additional unpaid leave is available during the year if required. The salary is adjusted prorata based on number of days of additional leaves taken.
