Parental leave explained
Firstly, Congratulations! Exciting times ahead for you and your whānau. When applying for parental leave, you want to make sure all the boxes have been ticked so that when your pēpē arrives everything is sorted.
We’ve put this resource together to help answer some of the questions RMOs have when applying for Parental leave. Whether you’re going to be the main caregiver or just need a few weeks off, it’s important to know what you’re entitled to, what forms to fill out and how to apply. The STONZ national manual is also a great resource (link below) and provides the MECA interpretation but also includes a number of scenario’s which may be helpful depending on your situation.
If you still have questions, please get in touch, our team is happy to help.
