More about paternity leave:
Under the Omnibus Law No. 6645 in 2015, new types of paid leave are provided. An employee whose spouse has given birth to a child is entitled to five days of paid leave. There is also an option of three days' paid leave in the case of a adoption of a child for adoptive employees. The Civil Servants Code (No. 657) contrastingly grants a 10-day period of paid leave for male civil servants whose spouses have given birth.

More about parental leave:
Parental leave is provided under the Labour Law 2003. On the request of a female employee, an unpaid leave for 6 month maybe granted after the expiration of the maternity leave. However, this period shall not be considered in determining the employee's year of service for entitlement to a paid annual leave.
Employed parents whose child has at least 70% disability or chronic disease based on a medical report, are allowed to take up to 10 days' paid leave in a year for attending the treatment of the child on condition that leave may be taken only by one of the parents and without interruption.
