Relaxed requirements for documentation required to prove that an employee lived together with an adopted child prior to adoption when applying for unpaid parental leave under the Act of Gender Equalit

  • Last updated:2021-10-18

In order to protect the rights and interests of employees and their adopted children, the Ministry of Labor has issued a circular explaining the provisions regarding the Family Act and the Protection of Children and Youths Welfare and Rights Act in Paragraph 3, Article 16 of the Act of Gender Equality in Employment. Employees who lived together with their adopted children prior to adoption can apply for unpaid parental leave. Documents required to prove that the parent and child lived together prior to adoption include court rulings and, also under special circumstances, court papers such as issuance of notices from family courts or testimonies from the chief of village or borough, which may be deemed sufficient to ascertain that the employee and adoptee have indeed lived together.
