Paternal leave

The father can take the following leave after the child is born:

  • paternity leave for a maximum 54 working days (new legislation introduced 1.1.2013) OR paternity leave and daddy month (previous legislation).
  • parental leave after the mother's maternity leave (the leave can also be shared with the mother, but you cannot take it at the same time).
  • child care leave after parental leave.
  • part-time child care leave if you return to work part time.
