Did You Know

November 8, 2016

The Association’s Teacher Welfare program area has developed a maternity information online tool for teachers who are expecting to expand their families. The informative videos and resource kit for maternity and parental leaves answer many of the most often asked questions about the benefits to which pregnant teachers are eligible before and during their maternity leave.

In addition to maternity benefit information, the online tool also provides sample letters to notify your employer of your intent to take a leave of absence, to return to work and even to extend your leave.
