Special Leave

Published December 11, 2018 Author: Andrew Felix Rose

On top of their normal parental leave entitlements, female employees who are pregnant can take up to 10 days of unpaid leave for pregnancy-related reasons. Common reasons to take this form of leave are to attend midwife appointments, medical screenings and antenatal classes, to name a few.

Special leave is recognised under the Parental Leave and Employment Protection Act 1987.
