More about paternity leave:
No specific paternity leave entitlements are found in the Labour Law. However, a worker may request for up to 7 days special leave for personal reasons that affect his immediate family (marriage of an employee or his/her child, birth of a child, illness or death of an employee's husband, wife, children or parents). If an employee has not taken annual leave, this special leave may be deducted from the annual leave. If an employee has already exhausted his/her annual leave, the employer may require him to work longer hours in order to make up for that leave.
The making up for the time lost can be implemented on the ordinary work day provided that the total working hours should not exceed 10 hours a day and 45 hours per week. These increased working hours are paid at the normal hourly rate of pay.
