Paid Time Off (PTO)
Employees are therefore entitled to ten days of paid time off during family activities. For any child under the age of six, female employers are entitled to two days of paid leave.
Employees accrue 1.5 days of paid vacation leave for each month worked and after five years of service, employees receive a further two days a month.
There are 11 public holidays.
Employees receive five days of paid sick leave each year and employers are responsible for medical treatment if the employee was injured during work.
The expectant mother's regular rate of pay is compensated after maternity leave by social security. Female workers are entitled to 14 weeks of maternity leave, beginning four weeks before the due date, covered by the CNPS.
Maternity leave starts four weeks prior to the due date of the baby's arrival. If the time of confinement occurs after the due date, the maternity leave will resume in full once the period of confinement starts.
Paternity leave will be taken from the 10 days of voluntary paid parental leave available to fathers.
