There is no maternity or paternity leave, per se. Instead, there is great annual leave (up to 5 weeks earned per year after 15 years; 4 weeks per year after 3 years; and 2 weeks, 3 days earned per year starting day-one; plus 2 weeks, 3 days earned each year in sick leave. Unused annual leave (up to 240 hours of "use or lose" plus leave earned in the final year amounting to 208 hours) results in a cash payout at retirement -- could be around $30K or more. Unused sick leave counts toward the retirement annuity.
