According to the bulletin, the male members of staff who wish to make official request for paternity leave are to do so on the first day of delivery of the baby.
“In addition, for deliveries that fall on weekends, application should be forwarded to the establishment on the first day of work.
“Please, note that paternity leave is for the first 10 days in relation to and at the time of the first two deliveries of a male staff’s spouse,” the publication said. (NAN)
