Parental Leave - Victorian Catholic

Parental Leave handbook

The IEU is committed to ensuring that your transition to parenthood and your return to work after parental leave is smooth, and that you have up-to-date information about your employment rights and responsibilities at every stage.

With this in mind, we’ve created this Parental Leave Handbook to answer some of the common questions members ask about parental leave and the return to work. It clearly outlines both your rights and your responsibilities as someone employed under the Victorian Catholic Education Multi Enterprise Agreement 2013.

The parental leave booklet is available to members in Member Access

If you have any questions that this book can’t answer, please contact the IEU on 9254 1860, or email


Parental Leave forms

These forms, prepared in consultation with the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria, are designed to help you make both you and your employer are acting in accordance with the terms of the Victorian Catholic Agreement. No member is required to use these exact forms, but you may find them useful.
