More about paternity leave:

There is no provision on paternity leave in Employment Act or any other labour law. It depends on the company policy to provide such leave, usually ranging between 1-3 days, or require new fathers to take unpaid leave or use (part of) annual leave as additional time off. Malaysian civil servants are entitled to seven days of paternity leave while some state government employees can take up to 14 days of paternity leave.

The term parental leave doesn’t exist in Malaysian legislation. Thus, the law is silent on it and it depends on the company policy.
