special parental leave

Pregnant employees can take unpaid special parental leave if they are unfit for work due to a pregnancy-related illness or have experienced a pregnancy loss after 12 weeks, provided the baby is not stillborn.

This type of leave is specifically for pregnant employees who are unable to work due to health complications related to their pregnancy or if they experience a pregnancy loss in the later stages, but the baby is not stillborn. It's a compassionate consideration to support the employee during these challenging circumstances.
