Childbirth and childcare leave

When the birth of a child is expected, maternity leave before childbirth can be received six weeks before the expected date of delivery (or 14 weeks in the case of twins or more). Maternity leave after childbirth is for eight weeks from the day after delivery.

Childcare leave is a system that can be used when a staff member who meets the prescribed requirements returns to work after the maternity leave and before the child reaches one year of age. If the child does not enter a day care center, the childcare leave period can also be gradually extended until the child reaches two years of age at maximum. In addition, when it is necessary to raise a child who does not meet the requirement for elementary school enrollment, the staff member can apply to the company to receive the childcare shortened working hours system.
