Adding to your family is an exciting time of life. It’s important to take the time you need to recover and bond with your new baby. BMO provides paid time off so you can take care of yourself and the health and well-being of your new baby.
|Taking Maternity Leave|
Your pay may be interrupted if you do not promptly report your child’s birth.
|Pay While on Leave|
First 12 weeks—Birth mothers are eligible to receive 100% salary continuation starting on the first business day on or after the birth of a child, for up to 12 weeks.
Second 12 weeks—Immediately after paid Maternity Leave, birth mothers can take up to an additional 12 weeks of continuous, unpaid, job-protected leave. If you choose to take additional unpaid time, you can supplement your pay using sick or vacation time, if available.
Paid Maternity Leave runs concurrently with FML.
Backup childcare program
BMO offers 10 days of paid backup childcare per year. To take advantage of this valuable program, register with Bright Horizons (employer ID: bmofg; pwd: backup).
Your incentive pay
If, during the Incentive Pay plan year, you are on a paid or unpaid leave of absence, any allocated incentive award will be prorated based on actual time worked.
