76.13. To obtain maternity leave, an officer must give the employer a written notice at least 2 weeks before the date of departure. The notice must be accompanied by a medical certificate or a written report signed by a midwife attesting to the pregnancy and expected date of delivery.
The time period to give notice may be shorter if a medical certificate certifies that the officer must stop working earlier than expected. In case of unforeseen events, the officer shall not be required to give notice, subject to submitting a medical certificate to her employer stating that she must immediately stop working.
