Step 4: Select Employee by clicking on Person Icon.

Step 5: Enter the youngest child's name. 

Step 6: Enter the Birth Date. Once the birth date is entered, the Leave Start Year column will automatically be populated based on the Birth Date column, or you can manually key in the following year after the child's birth year. 

Step 7: Indicate whether the child is Singaporean or not. If the child is Singaporean, put a tick in the Pro-family leave column. Leave it unticked if the child is non-Singaporean.

  • For Maternity leave type, no child details are necessary as this leave is available to all female staff as a default
  • For Extended Maternity*, child details are needed. The leave type will automatically be available after staff has used the Maternity leave. Kindly ensure that the "Pro-Family Leave" column is ticked.

The system will record the GPCL/ECL file to the system if the Child details are added. This article can provide you with further information regarding the government leave feature: - Administration - Government Leave
