In February 2022 we significantly expanded our adoption, surrogacy, parental and paternity leave across all our jurisdictions.
We offer 18 weeks paid and 34 weeks unpaid maternity leave across our BVI, Cayman, Hong Kong, and Singapore offices, bringing the policies in line with our Channel Islands offices.
Permanent employees are entitled to this benefit from their first day with Ogier, as continuous service requirements were removed from the Ogier maternity leave policies in 2021.
Across all jurisdictions, adoption and surrogacy leave have also been increased to 18 weeks paid and 34 weeks unpaid, and parental/paternity leave benefits have increased to 9 weeks paid and up to 43 weeks unpaid.
Our total package significantly exceeds statutory requirements.
