In case of miscarriage or emergency termination of pregnancy, employee will be entitled to 60 days of paid maternity leave or global bereavement leave and not both. An additional unpaid leave can be used at the employee’s discretion. An employee who qualifies as a solo parent will be granted an additional 15 days maternity leave.  The period of maternity leave shall be inclusive of any holiday(s) that fall within the period of maternity leave. Maternity leave is available to eligible Philippines-based employees regardless of nationality or marital status.
