Can we have several successive parental leave periods?

Verified 27 October 2021 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

Yeah. Yeah. You can benefit from successive parental leave in case of new birth or adoption during parental education leave.

The request for new parental leave full-time or part-time is open to any employee (father or mother).

You must have at least 1 year seniority in the company.

You then send a reasoned request to your employer At least 1 month before the date on which you were to resume your activity.

You can end parental leave before it ends and resume your initial activity in the event of the child's death or a significant reduction in household resources.

An employee who is pregnant while on parental leave may interrupt her current leave in favor of a maternity leave, subject to conditions.
