76.37. An officer who sends to his employer, before the expiry date of his paternity leave, a notice accompanied by a medical certificate attesting that his child’s state of health makes it necessary, is entitled to an extension of his paternity leave. The duration of this extension is that specified in the medical certificate.
During such extension, an officer is considered to be on leave without pay and shall not receive any allowance or benefit from the employer; however, the officer receives the benefits provided for in section 76.56.
