Child Care Leaves for PRs

Postby salmanucit » Thu, 20 Jun 2013 10:41 am

Hi,
I am a PR and my current company was giving me 3 days of child care leave. I am going to join a new company who say that I will be entitled to 2 days child care leave as PR. Can anyone please highlight how much leaves I can enjoy being a PR, under the law of Singapore

Parents of non-citizens or single (unmarried) parents covered under the Employment Act are entitled to 2 days of childcare leave per year if:

The child (including legally adopted children or stepchildren) is below seven years of age; and
The employee has worked for the employer for at least 3 months.
Childcare leave for each parent is capped at 2 days per year regardless of the number of qualifying children.

Basically as a PR, you're entitled to none, unless your child happens to be a citizen.

Now, most companies will give you something (as you can see from your current offer). Many will give you the same as a citizen. I get the full thing, despite being on a PEP.

zzm9980, not quite. Parents of non-citizen children are entitled to 2 days, regardless if the child is a citizen or not.

Erm, zzm must have missed my post above his when I mentioned about the two-day bit.
