Latest Circular From TSC to all teachers
To : All Teachers
MATERNITY AND PATERNITY LEAVE
The Commission highlighted reforms and innovation in the delivery of educational services as its strategic emphasis area in its 2019–2023 Strategic Plan with the goal of enhancing service delivery to its employees and stakeholders.
In this context, the Commission has transitioned services associated with teacher leave applications to an online platform with success.
Since the implementation of the Human Resource Management Information System (HRMIS) Leave Module for Teachers on November 1st, 2021, the process for requesting leaves of absence has gone without a hitch.
There are explicit provisions for maternity, paternity, and pre-adoptive leave in the Code of Regulation for Teachers (2015) when read in conjunction with the Collective Bargaining Agreement (2021-2025). According to the aforementioned restrictions, each teacher is only permitted one leave at a time.
This Circular’s main goal is to let you know about the following changes to the leave policy that took place on July 1st, 2021.
Female employees are entitled to one hundred twenty (120) calendar days of paid leave starting on the day of delivery, and teachers are not required to give up their yearly leave because they took maternity leave.
Once a year, during the spouse’s maternity leave, a male teacher will be entitled to a paternity leave of twenty-one (21) calendar days with full salary.
A teacher is qualified for a pre-adoption leave of up to 45 calendar days, all of which are paid.
