“The Code of Regulation for teachers (2015) read together with the CBA (2021-2025), have specific provisions for maternity, paternity, and pre-adoptive leave. In line with the said provisions all teachers are eligible for only one leave at a time,” she stated.

Initially, female tutors were given a 90 calendar period from the date of confinement.

 

“This leave is exclusive of annual leave. The application for leave should be submitted to the DEO/MEO/DCE through the head of institution at least one month before the leave is due and must have supporting medical documents,” read an excerpt from the TSC site.

 

In the case of paternity leave days, a male teacher was previously given ten days within the period of the spouse’s maternity leave.

 

In cases where teachers had more than one wife, they were entitled to the leave days in respect to the one whose name appeared in the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) card..
