In general, parental or parental allowance is made up of two options for parental allowance (increase) for workers under plan IE: workers who have unpaid parental leave and who have chosen the standard parental allowance (35 weeks maximum) will receive an increase in these benefits to 93% of their weekly salary. In accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on the implementation of the collective agreement, which is included in all of the collective agreements mentioned above, the amendments are implemented as follows: Extended Parental Benefits: 61 weeks maximum within 78 weeks of the child`s birth or adoption week. Before you start your leave, make sure the information in your service leave system is correct and up-to-date. It is your responsibility to apply for and obtain permission for absences. The worker is subject to the provisions of the collective agreement under which he begins his parental leave, regardless of the date of the maternity leave. The date of a worker`s parental allowance is the date on which the worker enters parental leave, regardless of when maternity or parental leave has been requested or authorized. The new parental allowance provisions in the 2018-2022 collective agreement will come into force on November 18, 2019. Workers who take parental leave before that date are subject to the provisions of the 2014-2018 collective agreement, and those who are on parental leave on or after that date are subject to the provisions of the 2018-2022 collective agreement. In cases where workers are subject to different collective agreements that do not have the same language, each worker is subject to the provisions of his collective agreement for eligibility and the amount of parental allowance. If you do not fulfill your return contract, you must repay some or all of the compensation. Check your collective agreement or terms of employment for more information. The possibility of taking standard or extended parental leave without pay is available to workers covered by the EI plan or the PQ. Due to the implementation of our new collective agreements and retroactive compensation, we anticipate a delay, but the employer is committed to assessing these priorities in order to address Phoenix`s damages as quickly as possible.
Workers entitled to the standard option can receive a maximum maternity and parental allowance of 57 weeks, combined, for each combined maternity and unpaid parental leave. PSAC has successfully negotiated compensation for damages in Phoenix, which is significantly better than the employer`s agreement with other federal bargaining partners. Last year, the PSAC rejected the government`s meagre offer of 5 days of cash vacations, which was not enough and would have rewarded those who earn more while penalizing workers who earn less. The current agreement provides for a fair and equitable lump sum payment of $2,500 for PSAC members. Before you receive maternity or parental benefits, make sure your employment time is extended long enough for you to honour your return to work agreement. They may, if necessary, benefit from a maternity allowance or retroactive parental allowance. In accordance with the new provisions of the agreements mentioned above, the list of organizations for return to work commitment has been extended to any organization in Schedule I, Calendar IV or Calendar V of the Financial Management Act. If you are unable to honour your return contract because your period of employment expires before the day the contract is executed, you must repay all or part of the allowance. Parental leave not after maternity leave: you can take up to 37 weeks of leave without pay during the 52 weeks following your child`s date of birth.
