Can child leave also be taken when the child is 14 years old?

Article author

Yes, child leave can also be taken for a child in the calendar year in which the child turns 14. For example, if the child turns 14 on 1 August 2022, a parent can take child leave in the same year both before the child’s birthday and after the child turns 14, until 31 December of the same year.

The same principle continues to apply to child leave for a disabled child. In the case of child leave for a parent of a disabled child, the parent is entitled to a total of 12 days of child leave in the year in which the child turns 18.
