Parental leave

Parental leave encompasses paid and unpaid leave associated with the birth or adoption of a child.

Accessing parental leave

Check whether you're eligible for parental leave for the birth or adoption of your child. You can also find details on concurrent parental leave, how to apply and what information you'll need to provide.

While you're on leave

While on parental leave you can change your leave arrangements, access keeping in touch days and apply for professional development programs.

Returning to work
