More about paternity leave:
Male workers are entitled to two days of paid paternity leave on the birth of a child. Length of leave can be extended through collective bargaining. Bills are already proposed in parliament for the extension of statutory paternity leave. These provisions are, however, not applicable to public, domestic and agricultural workers.
