Parental Leave Act 	
 - Know Your Rights in the District of Columbia -	
Work Leave for Parenting Purposes
The District of Columbia Parental Leave Act allows employees who are parents or guardians to take 24 hours of leave 
(paid or unpaid) during a 12 month period to attend school-related activities. School events include but are not limited 
to: parent-teacher conferences, concerts, plays, rehearsals, sporting events, and other activities where the child is a 
participant or the subject of the event, not a spectator. 
 
The employee must notify the employer 10 days before the requested leave unless the school-related activity was not 
reasonably foreseeable. The leave can be unpaid or paid family, vacation, personal, compensatory or leave bank leave. 
The employer may deny the leave if granting the leave would disrupt the employer’s business and make the achievement 
of production or service unusually difficult.
