Relaxing rules on parental leave

Relaxing rules on parental leave

The FIQ has always considered work-family-study balance to be very important and with the hike in mandatory overtime, it is even harder for most FIQ members to achieve this balance.

The Couillard government announced last week that it would recommend relaxing the rules of the Québec Parental Insurance Plan to make it more flexible. In a press release today, the FIQ, in collaboration with member organizations, asked the government to hold a public consultation and to properly inform the public on the proposed flexibility.
