The corona parental leave will be extended until 30 September 2020, as can be read in a message published on the website of the ONEm/RVA.
In addition, changes to the current regulation are announced from 1 July 2020:
- single parents (living alone with one or more dependent children) and the parents of a disabled child will also be able to take full-time corona parental leave (in addition to 1/5 and half-time corona parental leave).
- the amount of the interruption benefit for corona parental leave for single parents and the parents of a disabled child will be increased by 50% compared to the benefit for ordinary parental leave. However, the amount of this increased interruption benefit will be limited to ensure that the interruption benefit does not exceed the lost gross wages.
Latest information: the ONEm/RVA points out that until further notice, it is not yet possible to submit an application to the ONEm/RVA for the period from 1 July until 30 September 2020 .
