hello... out liaoz... BABy born on or after 31 oct then elligible for 16 week.. Suck man... is in the MOM web
Ministry of Manpower | Marriage and Parenthood
-> dont't understand what it means .
"The extension to the Maternity Leave, enhancement of Childcare Leave and introduction of Infant Care Leave took effect on 31 October 2008."
Ministry of Manpower | Maternity Leave
-> here is still state is 16 weeks .
"An eligible employee is entitled to absent herself from work for four weeks immediately before and twelve weeks immediately after delivery, totalling 16 weeks."
You will qualify for 16 weeks of paid maternity leave if:
child is born on or after 31 October 2008; and
Your child is a Singapore Citizen; and
The child's parents are lawfully married; and
You have worked for the employer for a continuous duration of at least 90 days before the birth of the child.
Employers are encouraged to allow their eligible staff to claim the additional maternity, infant care and childcare leave provisions and extend the enhanced protection to pregnant employees from 17 Aug 2008; if they do so, the Government will pay for its share of the additional leave taken.
i guess it means that co. r encourage to give e additional 4th month n the government will pay for it, otherwise the 4th month is optional for those delivered before 31st oct.
what if my EDD is actually 3rd nov but was advised to induce due to medical reasons? kind of misleading...
depressed lol... if they never give i dont wanna work haha.. anyway i dont really wannna work , if my co dont give me i feel more dont wanna work with them sianz
Anyone read the newspaper yesterday. One big page on parenthood announcement.
But its so confusing...
When they 1st announced...they said effective from Jan 2009
Then after a while, they changed their mind to back date in Aug due to public feedback.
So all these while, what I understand is all will get 4mth ML if baby born on/after 21st Aug (sorry if I get the date wrong)
Then now it says Oct....
ya...my co. just send email confirming about the 6 days ccl, still yet to cfm e ML..sigh...
so hw about the baby bonus n the $ to $ a/c? any changes?
hmm...my HR said the 4th ML from Aug to Oct is not mandatory. It will depend on company.
So my friends who got 4th ML during this period damn lucky .
It is announced in MCYS . Maybe Thomson Medical Center have not change that time cos waiting for brother in law, you deliver early right?
You will get a cash gift of up to $4,000 each for your 1st and 2nd child and $6,000 each for your 3rd and 4th child. All your children born on or after 17 August 2008 will also enjoy Government contributions in the form of a dollar-for-dollar matching for the amount of savings you contribute to your child’s Children Development Account (CDA). If your child is born before 17 August 2008, he or she will enjoy the Government matching contributions in the CDA if he or she is your second to fourth child.
