76.21. Where the birth takes place after the expected due date, an officer is entitled to an extension of her maternity leave equal to the delay, unless she already has at least 2 weeks of maternity leave remaining after the birth.
An officer is entitled to an extension of her maternity leave if her own or her child’s state of health requires it. The duration of this extension, is the period that is specified in the medical certificate that must be provided by the officer.
During such extensions, an officer is considered to be on leave without pay and shall not receive any allowance or benefit from the employer. The officer receives the benefits provided for in section 76.19 only during the first 6 weeks in which the leave is extended, and thereafter, receives the benefits mentioned in section 76.56, provided that she is normally entitled thereto.
