Employees are entitled to pregnancy leave under the Employment Standards Act, 2000 for each pregnancy, and there is no specific requirement that an employee return to work between pregnancies.

Therefore, at law, an employee is permitted to begin their second parental leave immediately following the return date from their initial parental leave, as long as they provide at least two (2) weeks’ notice of their intention to take the pregnancy leave.

Further, while employees are entitled to take a second parental leave, they may not qualify for Employment Insurance benefits if they have not accumulated at least 600 hours of insurable employment during the qualifying period.

If you have any further inquiries relating to your entitlements while on pregnancy and/or parental leave, or are seeking legal advice in the event of a conflict, please contact Toronto employment lawyersSultan Lawyers at 416-214-5111 or via email to khayward@sultanlawyers.com.
