Pregnancy-related sick leave under the 2014 Public Service Sick Leave Scheme

20th January 2015 | News

DPER have issued an interim arrangement for public servants who took sick leave due to a pregnancy related illness and exhausted their paid sick leave due to this illness. The interim arrangement is as follows:

If a woman reaches the 4-year paid sick leave limit and pregnancy-related sick leave is listed as an absence on her 4-year sick leave record, then she will have access to additional leave (i.e. for the equivalent amount of time spent on pregnancy-related sick leave up to a maximum of 92 days) at half pay only subject to the overall maximum limits.
