Question:

What is the maximum amount of leave I can take for maternity?

 

Answer:

A female with permanent status may be eligible to take up to one year of unpaid leave for pregnancy, childbirth and recovery. This leave is normally paid for several months and the remaining time is unpaid.

Eligibility is based on the employee’s Collective Bargaining Agreement or ED Code 89519 for MPPs. Additional information regarding maternity leave may be obtained by scheduling an appointment with the Leave Program Manager.
