  • Keeping-in-Touch Days

    Days where an employee on parental leave chooses to come back to work. Employees can only do certain types of work on these days such as attending meetings, training or participating in planning sessions.

    While on parental leave, an employee can only do a total of 52 hours or less of paid work, and they cannot have a keeping-in-touch day within the first 28 days of their child being born.

    If an employee breaches any of these terms, they are deemed to be back at work. This means they will get no more parental leave payments and they might need to repay any payments they got after being deemed to be back at work.
