Information Circular No 35/2017: Parental Leave – Increase in the Maximum Age of the Child

By Industrial Relations Officer

PDFORRA wish to advise members that following discussions with the Department of Defence, an amendment to Para 420 (h) (2) of A Administrative Instruction Part 11 has now been agreed.

This amendment provides that the maximum age of  the child where Parental Leave can now be availed of has increased from age 8 to age 13 and brings  members of the Defence Forces in line with other members of the public service.

Any PDFORRA members experiencing difficulties regarding Parental Leave should contact their District Committee where assistance will be provided.
