matlv: Had period of maternity/paternity leave
I have just checked the questionnaire for waves involved and noticed this question is only asked when:
If (ff_ivlolw = 1) // interviewed at prior wave
And If (EmpChk = 1 & Ff_JBSTAT > 1 & Ff_JBSTAT <> MIS|DK|REF) // continuously employed since last interview
And If (JbSamR = 1) // working for the same employer
And If (GRIDVARIABLES.NewMum = 1 | GRIDVARIABLES.NewDad = 1) // new mother or new father
I do not understand why you would limit this question to people who are "working for the same employer" since last interview?
