This is a parental leave optional clause. This clause is designed for inclusion in an employment contract. It provides for information in relation to an employee’s entitlements to parental leave, as well as information around the notification of such leave requests.
For an employment agreement, see the separate precedent collection, including the “Basic employment agreement (short form)” and “Basic employment agreement (long form)”. Clauses should be adapted to ensure consistence of terminology, particularly in relation to defined terms.
