As an employee of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) you are entitled to maternity, birth leave and parental leave based on the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities (CAO NU) and the Work and Care Act (WAZO). As such, you can take a period of leave so you can spend more time raising your child(ren) in combination with work.
