If you plan to take parental leave with parental benefit from the Swedish Social Insurance Agency (FK), your application to do so is to be submitted to your supervisor two months prior to the first day of the parental leave.
The University has a local agreement, Villkorsavtalet, regarding parental pay. The parental pay is 10 percent of the pay for a single workday for any amount up to the price base amount and 90 percent of the pay for a single workday for any amount above the price base amount. Parental pay is paid for a maximum of 360 days for each childbirth. You must have been employed for at least 90 days consecutively prior to the first day of the parental leave to receive parental pay. If you draw three quarters, half or one quarter parental leave, you will receive parental pay in that same proportion.
If you stay home to look after a sick child (temporary parental benefit) you are to notify your workplace and the switchboard personnel. You register with the FK yourself. Register in Primula upon returning to work.
