Parental Leave

Effective January 2, 2019, the Maryland Judiciary implemented a Parental Leave program. Parental Leave allows the parent(s) of a child (or children) to take up to 60 days of paid leave to bond and care for their child after the birth or adoption. An employee does not have to work for the Judiciary for a specific amount of time to be eligible for Parental Leave and it is available to part-time employees.
