  (b)   of the rights the employee taking unpaid parental leave has under:

  (i)   subsections   77A(4) and (5) (which provide a right to cancel the leave or end the leave early if the child is stillborn or dies within 24 months); and

  (ii)   section   84 (which deals with the return to work guarantee); and

  (d)   of the effect of section   78 (which provides the employer with a right to require the employee taking unpaid parental leave to return to work if the employee ceases to have any responsibility for the care of the child).

  (2)   Subsection   (1) does not apply in relation to the taking of flexible unpaid parental leave.
