I am an Indian citizen, working under a blue card work permit in Germany as a permanent employee. My contract mentions a notice period of 8 weeks while resigning.
I have a 5-year old son. Currently I am planning to take a 12-month parental leave. I have the following queries:
- Is the employer legally bound to give me the parental leave, or is it at the mercy of the employer?
2) While I am on parental leave, can I resign the job without serving the 8 weeks notice period?
