    Default Can one take parental leave in two slots?

    I guess my question is in the title but to add further details : I have taken 6 months of parental leave and am about to resume FT work.

    I am wondering if I would still be eligible to take further parental leave before my child is 1 yo.
    My childcare center will close for 3 weeks over Christmas and I don't have any AL left, so I thought it would be easier for me to claim 3 weeks extra of PL.

    Do you know if I am allowed to do that?

    Thanks!

    Do you mean parental leave for the same child? Or for a subsequent child?

    If its for the same one then I am afraid not.

    ETA: most employers allow unpaid leave for this.
