Today we want to talk about NYSC Terminal Leave?
Is Terminal Leave part of NYSC?
Or after service (collections of certificates)?
Let us start by talking about all NYSC Leave during service year
Corps members are entitled to the mainly Six (6) type of leave throughout the service year.
Casual Leave/Camp Rest Leave: usually two weeks after camp activities and securing your PPA, corpers take them to get their stuff and themselves ready Check more about it here and how to write it's letter
Convocation Leave: at most 1-Week
Medical Leave You can check that here
Marriage Leave: at most for 14 Days
a. A member who desires to get married during the service year shall be allowed to perform the marriage ceremony in any place of his/her choice.
b. Any member who wishes to apply for leave for the purpose of sub-paragraph (a) above shall do so, not later than, four weeks before the date of the proposed marriage
Maternity Leave during the service year
a. A married or an unmarried pregnant member shall be entitled to twelve weeks maternity leave. During this period of leave, she will be paid full monthly allowance.
b. She will not, however, be entitled to the annual leave of 21days (terminal leave).
This is the area we want to dwell on, it is a leave just like any of the leave mentioned above.
The let sink that in for a while,
That means like other leave for example medical leave, or convocation leave during the leave you are still expecting to get paid, and you don't stop been a Corp member because you take a break for your convocation.
Therefore, Terminal leave which often start close to the end of your service year, don't mean you are not a Corp member.
Infact Corps members are entitled to 3-Weeks terminal leave at the end of service year. Many time after collecting certificate
