All employees are allowed birth leave on full pay on the occasion of the birth of a child to their wife. The entitlement may vary depending on the applicable Wage Regulation Order. Employees in activities of work which are not regulated by any W.R.O., are allowed one working day of birth leave as stipulated in L.N. 432 of 2007 - Minimum Special Leave Entitlement Regulations. The entitlement of birth leave is linked with the birth of a child and therefore in the case of a birth of twins, the entitlement is double.
