Special payment during parental leave – what parents are entitled to
During parental leave, many families are not so well off financially. Because wage payments are different than usual and a special payment during parental leave may not be made. But there are differences, which can be read in the employment contract: Some special payments must be granted during parental leave, others not. This article is dedicated to the payments of vacation allowance, which is handled differently during parental leave and pregnancy, as well as the payments of Christmas bonus during pregnancy and parental leave.
Vacation pay during parental leave
Conditions, amount and tax coverage
In general, a distinction must be made between two periods when it comes to parental leave: maternity leave directly affects the weeks before and after the birth. During this time, the employer must pay the vacation allowance. This is determined by law. The reason for this is that these periods are assessed as normal working weeks, even if a ban on employment applies under certain circumstances.
