Aviva Singapore has just unveiled its new parental leave policy which offers equal paternity and maternity leave for all Singapore-based permanent Aviva employees regardless of gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and marital status.

According to a media statement, employees are required to have a minimum of three months of continuous service to be eligible for this policy which covers both birth and/or adoption. The policy offers sixteen weeks of parental leave at full pay within the first twelve months of a child’s arrival, effective as of 19 November 2017.

Under the new policy, there is no limit on the number of new children and employees welcoming a new child twice within a year are entitled to sixteen weeks of parental leave each time, which can be utilised within a year of the arrival of each child.

Additionally, if both parents are employees, they will each have their own entitlement to leave and pay, which can be taken at the same time.

This new policy is in addition to other existing parental leave arrangements at Aviva, such as the shared parental leave (up to 4 weeks), childcare leave (6 days), extended childcare leave (2 days) and new infant care leave (6 days unpaid).
