Being a parent is one of the most important roles you’ll have in life. BMO supports you by providing paid time off to care for and bond with your newest family member.
|Taking Parental Leave|
Your pay may be interrupted if you do not promptly report the onset of your leave.
|Pay While on Leave|
First 12 weeks—Fathers, same-gender domestic partners and adoptive parents are eligible to receive 100% salary continuation, for up to 12 weeks.
Second 12 weeks—Fathers, same-gender domestic partners and adoptive parents can take an additional 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave. If you choose to take additional unpaid time, you can supplement your pay using sick or vacation time, if available.
