Being or becoming a parent can be challenging at home and at work. No matter if you are already a parent or are going to be one, you might have some questions about what Intempt has in place for Intempt moms and dads. This page should contain all the information you seek.
If you are the primary caregiver of a new child, you can take up to 12 weeks leave at 100% paid salary. If you are the secondary caregiver of a new child, you can take up to 4 weeks leave at 100% paid salary. You may also choose to take an additional 8 weeks leave unpaid as the primary or secondary caregiver. This time is meant for bonding with the new child and should commence from the date of birth or placement.
When you're pregnant, we recommend you inform your lead and HR no later than 3 months before your due date. This way we have enough time for preparing our plans and working schedules to make things work when you are absent. We also need a pregnancy statement from your doctor with the due date.
