Q. What are the Notification Requirements?
Your employer must be given at least six weeks written notice of your intention to take parental leave. However, it is at your employer's discretion to waive all or part of this period.
The notice must set out the date you propose to commence the leave, its duration and the manner in which it is proposed to be taken.
