Surrogacy and Paid Family Leave

In New Delhi, India, female employees of the federal government can now apply for paid family leave if they have a child through surrogacy. The new decision from the personnel ministry came when a mother had twins through the assisted family planning process, yet was denied paid family leave because she was not the biological mother.

After petitioning for family leave, an authority would then decide on the timing and the amount of time the paid family leave would take place taking into consideration the specific facts of the case. Paid family leave is guaranteed up to 26 weeks, or about 180 days to the commissioning mothers. The official order of the personnel ministry also states that the commissioning mother can apply for family leave during the prenatal stage of the pregnancy, although this request will go through more scrutiny in comparison to the request after the birth of the child or children. If both the surrogate and the commissioning mother are government employees, both would be able to petition for family leave as well.

To learn more about the surrogate process, or to seek counsel for a family planning process or any other family law matters, please do not hesitate to contact Evie P. Jeang, Managing Partner of Ideal Legal Group and Founder of Surrogacy Concierges.

代孕与带薪家事假

在印度的新德里,通过代孕的帮助,而拥有孩子的联邦政府女性员工,现可在委托代孕期间申请带薪家事假。这个来自于政府人事部的决定,是源于一位母亲。这位母亲曾是一名委托代孕者。在助孕机构的帮助下,她成功拥有了一对双胞胎。但她在委托代孕期间申请的带薪家事假的请求,却被拒绝了,就因为她不是孩子的生母。

在申请因家事休假后,当局会根据案件的具体情况,决定带薪家事休假的时段和时长。委托代孕的母亲的带薪家事休假可保证长达26周,大约180天。政府人事部的官方命令还规定,委托代孕的母亲在代母产前阶段便可申请家事休假,但是产前带薪休假的请求会比产后休假经过更严格的审查。如果代母和委托代孕的母亲都是政府员工,她们双双都可以申请家事假。
