This article will enumerate certain parameters that need to be set before the staff can apply for the following leave types: Child Care Leave, Maternity, Extended Maternity, Paternity, and Shared Parental Leave.
- The basic requirement before staff can start utilizing any of the leave types stated above is the Child Details. The Child Details page is where the system filters and considers what particular leave type will be available for the staff.
To add in the child details of the staff, please follow the steps below:

Join Date - indicate the staff's join date
Youngest Child's Name - note that as per MOM, only the youngest child can be considered for any of the leave types mentioned above.
Birth Date - the Date of Birth of the child
Leave Start Year - this will be auto populated based on the Date of Birth of the child. The system will also use this to calculate what leave type the staff is eligible for
Pro-Family Leave - this is where you tell the system if the child is Singaporean/Non-Singaporean. Put a tick if Singaporean, unticked if non-Singaporean.
Shared Parental - put a tick on this column if the staff is entitled to Shared Parental Leave. (NOTE: Shared Parental Leave is when the wife shares a part of her maternity leave to her husband)
