I have had dozens of meetings with LEA members this year who are expectant mothers/fathers who plan to go out on maternity/parental/adoptive leave and who want to understand their contractual rights, options and obligations.
I am always happy to meet with members, as are the building representatives. But, I thought it might be best to create an authoritative guide on the topic with all the typical FAQs.
The attached document walks you through the process step- by- step. I recommend that any member going out on any form of leave stemming from parental necessity read this document in full.
I have also attached a sample letter for communicating with HR.
Still, happy to meet too.Parental Leaves Guide
