These rules apply to children born 1 August 2022 or earlier.
Your employment will be extended for the part of your leave taken within your period of employment.
If your employment expire during maternity/paternity or adoption leave, your employment will be extended with the remaining period of leave. This means that you will continue to receive your monthly salary for the paid part of the leave after the employment expires. The leave with daily benefits does not change when your employment expires. Furthermore, your employment will be extended with the part of the leave taken before the employment expired. This means that - after ending your leave – you will return to work for a period which corresponds to the absence within the period of employment.
The graduate school does not extend the enrolment or employment for any leave of absence held without prior written consent from the graduate school.
