Leave Schemes for Parents

This section provides information on parental leave options after the maternity protection period. Depending on the country, parental leave is equally available to mothers and fathers, and is intended to give parents the opportunity to spend time caring for their young children. 

Here you will find standardised information about policy changes in this field over time. It is important to note, however, that our focus is on more far-reaching reforms. Information on smaller policy modifications, such as slight changes to benefit rates, may not be found in this collection.
