How do I apply for a Leave of Absence? Is maternity/paternity leave paid? What happens if my baby is not delivered on the expected date? What should I do when my baby is born? What If I get sick when I am pregnant or my doctor puts me on bedrest? If I am expecting a baby, how far in advance of my due date may I stop working? How much leave may a husband and wife take for the birth of a child if they are both employed by HCPSS?
