RANZCOG Parental Leave

RANZCOG

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

Updated

At RANZCOG, we aim to create inclusive and flexible workplaces that support and enable all parents to take an active role in caring for their family and giving their children the best start in life.

Families come in all shapes and sizes, which is why our policies are designed to support all parents. This includes same-sex couples, adoptive and foster parents, kinship and surrogacy arrangements.

We are proud to announce that College staff across Australia and New Zealand are entitled to 26 weeks parental leave.

All parental leave entitlements are inclusive of LGBTQIA+ people, regardless of the gender, identity and expression of the staff member or their partner.

RANZCOG calls on Federal and State governments to make 26 weeks parental leave universal for all doctors in training, no qualifying period, and to be transferable intrastate and interstate.

We are also pleased to announce a benefit for employees wanting to start or expand their family – paid leave (10 days) for fertility and IVF treatment.

The College also offers leave for miscarriage, pregnancy loss and for pregnancy-related illness.
