Are maternity costs an eligible cost on EC grants?

0

A. The costs of paying the researcher during periods of parental leave may be an eligible cost but each case is reviewed on an individual basis by the EC. The maximum the EC will reimburse is the maternity pay we are legally bound to pay the staff member, less the amount we are refunded for statutory pay by the Government. The Commission must be informed as soon as a member of staff employed on an EC grant informs the Department they are pregnant. In certain cases an extension to the grant may be requested and approved by the EC (an official contract amendment must be processed). Please contact your Awards Administrator at the Research Office for further advice.
