    Hi,
    Is it better to buy extra annual leave days at work or to use the unpaid parental leave allowance per child?
    Thanks

    I've never heard of anyone 'buying' annual leave.

    In any event wouldn't the net effect be the same? You'd effectively be on unpaid leave either way; the parental leave is a legal right, where as regular unpaid leave isn't.
