Summary of Changes/Comments
May 30, 2019 - All of the parental policies reflect editorial changes that align with the Gender Parity Strategy, such as gender neutrality. In addition, the following paragraph was updated:

24. To ensure adequate child care and bonding with a newly born child, following paternity leave, a staff member can apply for flexible working arrangements (e.g. telecommuting, part-time work) or request special leave without pay, which, as a general rule, should be granted. In case there is a compelling reason that prevents the supervisor from granting the request, a written justification must be endorsed by the Head of Office and the respective Bureau.

26 June 2015 - Change in procedures to reflect implementaion of e-services in 2011 (section Procedures and Roles and Responsibilities)
